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:

Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness

By Scarlett Stough

To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, I Am the Bread of Life.

1. Matthew 5:6. What do you think is the righteousness Jesus promises to satisfy? If possible, list scriptures to support your answer.

2. Read John Chapter Six. Why did the crowds go seeking for Jesus in this account?

3. John 6:25-42. The people asked him several questions which Jesus did not answer directly--at least not the kind of answer they expected. They asked him how he got to the other side of the lake. They asked him what they could "do" to fulfill God's requirements for eternal life. They asked him for miraculous signs. Why did they not like the answers he gave?

4. John 6:43-51. What single thing did Jesus tell them was needed for them to be given eternal life?

5. John 6:52-66. Why was Jesus' teaching so offensive to many of his disciples that they no longer followed him?

6. John 6:67-71. Why did the twelve disciples stay to follow Jesus? Do you think they understood Jesus' teaching about giving his flesh for the life of the world (John 6:51)?

7. John 20:24-31. What did it take for Thomas to believe Jesus had been resurrected to life? Why are the words of John’s account of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus recorded? Why do you believe?
