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.

Born Again

By Scarlett Stough


To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, In the Image of God

1. Romans 1:20; Psalm 19:1-6; John 14:5-10; Colossians 1:15 What can you learn about God from the natural world? What can you not know about him from observing nature? How can we know more about God?

2. Leviticus 11:44-45; Genesis 1:27; II Corinthians 3:18; Colossians 1:21-23; I Peter 1:15-16; II Peter 3:11 Why do you think this one word “holy” can summarize God’s character and likeness? How is it possible to become holy as God is holy?

3. Exodus 34:6-7 List each of the characteristics that makes up God’s name and likeness. Briefly describe each one and give an example of each as you have seen it put into practice by others.

4. John 3:1-21; Acts 2:38-42; Galatians 5:13-26; I Peter 1:3-5 Why do think Jesus used “born again” to describe the change that is required to enter the kingdom of heaven? How is that change begun?

5. I John 1:5-10; Philippians 3:12-14 Does this mean that if we ever sin again, we are not “born again?” Explain your answer.

6. John 3:16; Acts 2:38; 3:19-20; Romans 12:2; II Peter 3:18; Romans 8:28-30 What is the process we undergo as we are “born again?”

7. I John 2:1-6, 28-29; 3:1-12; Romans 8:12-17; II Corinthians 5:17 How can we be certain that we have been “born again?”

8. Romans 14:4; Philippians 1:4-6; II Peter 1:3 How can we be certain we are being transformed into the likeness of God and the process will be completed?
