Bible study assignment instructions

Introduction to Biblical Literature course taught at Southern Nazarene University

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path" -- Psalm 119:105

There are a dozen of Bible Study assignment sheets to be completed. They start with Genesis and go through Revelation. Along the way, you will read about a fourth of the Bible. You will be asked to reflect on the lives of lots of 80 Bible characters. Don't be overwhelmed. Here's what to do:

  1. Turn each one in on time
  2. Read the assigned Bible passages.
  3. Read the textbook pages.
  4. As you answer the questions, be sure to answer each part of mullti-part questions.
"Because the Bible grapples with the basic questions man has always asked himself, it has fascinated him for 2,000 years and more. This is why it is the most influential and widely read book in human history. The Bible which is actually a collection of sixty-six small books -- tells of the rise and fall of ancient nations and the clash of armies. It tells about kings and plain people, heroes and villains. It contains history and theology, poetry and songs, philosophy and letters. It contains strange dream-visions, wise sayings, and some seemingly dull collections of court records, family trees, and religious rules. It contains some of the greatest literature man has produced. All of it is directed to the relationship between man and God"
