Books of the Bible Study Questions: 1 Timothy

First Timothy, one of the Pauline Epistles, is written to a young pastor named Timothy. It is the first of two letters written to him from his mentor in ministry, Paul.

Luther noted that 1 Timothy “provide[s] a model to all bishops of what they are to teach and how they are to rule Christendom in the various stations of life, so that it may not be necessary for them to rule Christians according to their own human opinions” (Luther’s Works, vol. 35, p. 388). Today, we trust that all pastors—young and experienced alike—teach and preach the Word of God faithfully.

Books of the Bible Study Questions: Ecclesiastes

Imagine having the world at your fingertips. God gave it all to young King Solomon when He gave him a wise and discerning heart. Like the prodigal son in Jesus’ parable, Solomon squandered God’s generous gift in wild living. Here in his Book of Ecclesiastes, he reports on his discoveries about a life of self-indulgence lived apart from God. 

Books of the Bible Study Questions: Ezra

The Book of Ezra is not well known; we tend to just mumble our way over it when we say the books of the Bible (1 and 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther . . .) and maybe never even venture to see what's inside this Old Testament book.

Books of the Bible Study Questions: Matthew

 

Books of the Bible Study Questions: 1 Samuel

In 1 Samuel, we meet a host of important characters in the biblical narrative: Hannah, Samuel, Saul, and David. These names might seem familiar from Sunday School, but the intertwining story between these characters is epic.
