Bible Study

Last Sunday, I was sick and stayed home from church but took the opportunity to spend the day starting an inductive study on the gospel of John in preparation for a Bible study with a friend. On Monday, I decided to "kill two birds with one stone" and started doing a simplified version of the study with my kids each day. On Monday, I taught them a basic background information about the book, the author, the audience and the purpose which we review each day. I printed out a copy of the first chapter for each of them which I copied off the internet (NASB) and pasted into WordPerfect where I enlarged the font and double-spaced the lines. The kids have been enjoying marking symbols over key words. We will finish that tomorrow (1:1-18) and start making lists of what we learn from the key words. We won't do everything that I've done in my own study, but it is rewarding to teach them some study skills that we can build on. They like it.
