"So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself."

Pray before you begin

BIBLE STUDY METHOD
Practice writing Application using:

Matthew 6:33 English Standard Version (ESV)
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
Determine Meaning of the verses you are studying by putting
everything together.
History of the Verses
What's important in the verses?
Context of the Verses
Explain phrase by phrase- any figurative language, what God is communicating in the verses, and truths of the verses (use John Gill''s Exposition of the Bible)
How long should the interpretation be?
The interpretation (meaning) should be written in paragraph form and should be a sentence or two to explain the observation (history and context of the verses), plus a phrase to explain each phrase in the verses.
Who wrote it? (Author)
Who was it written to? (Receiver)
What was the purpose of writing?
What grouping is the book in?
(Use Bible Study app- Scofield Reference Notes, or use Study Bibles)
Who- is talking
-is listening
If it's a letter, you can put writer and receiver's names
What are the important ideas in the verse(s)?
Say what you see- don't give meaning yet
look for repeated words and keywords to help
When is it happening?
(is there anything important about the time?)
Sometimes you may have to answer "no specific
time mentioned"
Where is it happening?
(is there anything important about the place?)
Sometimes you may have to answer- "no specific
place mentioned"
Context of the Verses:
What is happening before and after the verses?
What do the subtitles (headings) say? Find 3 before and 3 after
Read a few verses before and after (usually a paragraph is enough)and look for repeated words or keywords to help
Read the beginning of the chapter and maybe the beginning of the book
How does all of this link together to the verses you are studying?
Practice uncovering the History of the Verses using:

Matthew 6:33 English Standard Version (ESV)
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
Determine meaning of words you don't know.
Use Dictionary.com
Determine
meaning
of any figurative language.
Explain the figurative language- don't just explain
what type of figurative language it is.
Maybe you have never studied scripture before because you don't know where to start.
What are some ways to study scripture?
By book
By person
By topic
By using a devotional
How long should the application be?
Whatever length it takes you to explain thoroughly.
You should always BE SPECIFIC in your application in order to give yourself a goal to change in a POSITIVE way. Generalities don't cause change.
We read God's Word not just for information, but for TRANSFORMATION!
Practice uncovering "What's Important" using:

Matthew 6:33 English Standard Version (ESV)
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
Practice writing the Interpretation (Meaning) using:

Matthew 6:33 English Standard Version (ESV)
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
Interpretation is not based on opinion, it is based on
TRUTH.
Importance of Context
Ineffective ways of studying Scripture
Matthew 6:33 English Standard Version (ESV)

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
Work in order:
1. Observation
2. Interpretation
3.Application

(The open, point and read method)
If you study by book, choose wisely!
I recommend starting with John (about the life of Jesus)
