Now that we are introduced to the book of Luke and have a better perspective why it was written and who it was written for - we get to read it! Let's start from the beginning. This week we will read chapters one and two of the gospel of Luke.
Below is a Bible study sheet that will serve as a guide. Click on the image below and print pages 5-6. Most notes will be written in the margins of the Luke text but there are some specific questions to be answered on the Bible study sheet as well.
Here‘s what else you need: - A Bible journal with wide margins OR you can print the whole book of Luke double spaced with 12 font. - An additional Bible translation to compare. NIV, NKJV, NASB, & ESV are some reliable ones. - An audio Bible, audio Bible app, or you can listen online here. - A trusted Bible commentary. I have the Luke People's Bible Commentary. - A regular pencil & some colored pencils. - A Holy Hen House annotation bookmark (below).
One important aspect that should not be overlooked during our time in God's Word is prayer. Before, during, and after. As Jen Wilkin says in her book Women of the Word,
Prayer is what changes our study from the pursuit of knowledge to the pursuit of God himself.
Let's encourage one another throughout the week by sharing images of us studying the book of Luke on Instagram and Facebook using #HHHBibleStudy. It is an extra motivation to know we are reading God's Word together!
If you haven't already, don't forget to join our private online bible study Facebook group of 250+ women! That's where we will be discussing our questions, answers, and thoughts throughout the week.
