20 Questions

If you can read 20 Questions, you can lead a Bible Study.

Not sure you know the answer to the questions? No worries.

We provide answers in the form of quotes from people like Charles Swindoll, David Jeremiah, and John Ortberg that will make you sound brilliant.

Why we must discuss

We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. Paul said, “SPEAKING the truth… we grow.” Jesus said it is what comes out of a man that changes him. James said your words are the rudder of your life. Effective teachers lead people to speak the truth, not just hear the truth.

Weary of Struggling to Recruit Teachers?

A common problem in all churches–big churches and little churches–is the need for more workers. Jesus said it would be true. He said, “the harvest is plentiful is but the workers are few.” Question-based Bible Study Lessons makes recruiting teachers a whole lot easier.

Knowing God

“A hundred years from now only a handful of books written today will still be widely read and accepted as Christian classics. Dr. James I. Packer’s Knowing God may well prove to be one of them. A gifted theologian and writer, Dr. Packer has the rare ability to deal with profound and basic spiritual truths in a practical and highly readable way. This book will help every reader grasp in a fuller way one of the Bible’s greatest truths: that we can know God personally, because God wants us to know him.” Billy Graham

The Pursuit of Holiness

“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do—and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based lessons have groups talking and changing. We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. "Instead SPEAKING the truth (not just hearing the truth) we will grow." Ephesians 4.15

Seeing God Everywhere

Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory. LUKE 9:32 Frederick Buechner wrote, “As far as I know, there has never been an age that has not produced fairy tales.”[1] He says the reason fairy tales are universal is that they teach us what we most need to know about life. They...

Overcoming the Messiah Complex

Leon, Joseph, and Clyde all suffered from a messiah complex. It was not just a touch of narcissism or a dash of grandiosity. They were three chronic psychiatric patients at a hospital in Ypsilanti, Michigan, all diagnosed with psychotic delusional disorder, grandiose type. Each one maintained he was the reincarnation of Jesus...

The Greatest Sermon Ever

We can safely say that the Sermon on the Mount has been more widely acclaimed than any other sermon ever preached. The seventeenth century preacher Thomas Watson wrote of it: ‘Here is both usefulness and sweetness; here is a garden of delight; here is the golden key which will open the gate of Paradise.’ William Perkins, one of...

We have incredible tools for Bible study, for outreach, for discipleship, for keeping up with folks. Email. If you are a Bible study leader, email is your friend. I recommend you email your group every week and tell them how...

What is the Bible about?

One of the stories that “go on repeating themselves”—perhaps the Great Story—is the story of the journey. From The Odyssey to The Pilgrim’s Progress to The Divine Comedy to The Wizard of Oz to The Lord of the Rings, an ordinary character leaves home to enter a strange, unknown world. The character faces dangers, toils, and...

Joy and self-denial

The most common objection against the command to pursue joy is that Jesus commanded just the opposite when He called for our self-denial: “Whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it” (Mark 8:35). We have dealt with this already (p. 241), but it may be helpful to...

Was Abraham Lincoln a Christian?

Historians have long debated whether Abraham Lincoln was a Christian. Since his death in 1865, he has become a Rorschach test of sorts, upon which everybody projects their own beliefs. (I myself believe Lincoln was most certainly Presbyterian and probably Swedish.) In Michael Burkhimer’s book on the subject, he notes that before...

The with-them principle

The Navigators have a principle they call the with-them principle. It is based on Mark 3.14: He appointed twelve--designating them apostles--that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach. Mark 3:14 (NIV) Jesus’ method of making disciples was largely about spending time with them. It was discipleship by...

Zamperini got saved and so can you

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. MATTHEW 28:19-20 When Louis Zamperini was thirty-two years old, he got saved. Really saved. It happened this way. He had been a juvenile semidelinquent...
