Follow the strategies below to get the most out of the teachings found in the Bible.
The Bible is a very long book, but you can start nearly anywhere. For example, if you want to learn about Jesus, you can start with the gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John found in the New Testament.
Open by addressing God. Then ask Him for wisdom and understanding as you read. Ask for specific guidance. When you’re done, end your prayer “in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.” Click here to learn more about how to pray.
Start with the resources found on ChurchofJesusChrist.org, which list common topics and related scripture verses. You can then use the linked words to expand your study.
Don’t forget the things the Bible has to teach you! Use a journal or notebook to keep track of the insights you pick up as you study.
Read the Holy Bible with missionaries via voice or video call and get a free digital copy.
Missionaries will contact you to schedule your call. Keep in mind, it may be from an area code or phone number you don’t recognize.
