These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.  

Bible Study Guide:

A New Creation Has Come

By Scarlett Stough

To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Making Everything New.

1. Deuteronomy 5:29; Hebrews 8:6-13; 9:15-17. What was wrong with the Old Covenant? What makes it obsolete?

2. Matthew 9:14-17; Mark 2:18-22; Luke 5:33-39. How are these three accounts similar? How do they differ from each other? What do you think Jesus meant us to understand by this parable?

3. Romans 1:16-17. What was the "good" in the "news" Jesus brought? What was the "new" in the message of Jesus?

4. Romans 2:5-6; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; 6:14-18; 7:1; Revelation 21:5-8. Why is "making everything new" necessary? In what ways do we participate in God’s new creation?

5. 2 Peter 3:8-18. Why do we have to wait for God to bring peace and judgment to this earth? What is our responsibility while we wait?
