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:

Wisdom From God

By Scarlett Stough


To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Searching for Wisdom.

1. Genesis 2:16-17 What command did God give to Adam and Eve? Why do you think God wanted to withhold the fruit of this one tree from them?

2. Genesis 3:4-6 What decision did Eve make and what was her reasoning?

3. Proverbs 2:6; Psalm 119:97-100; II Timothy 3:14-15 Since God does not want to withhold wisdom from us, how does he give us wisdom?

4. John 5:39-40; I Corinthians 1:30; I Corinthians 2:12-17 What is our responsibility in receiving the wisdom God wants to give us? If these are steps, in what order should they be followed?

5. II Corinthians 11:3 KJV and/or NIV What do you think a pure, sincere devotion to Christ is, or if you are using the KJV, what does the “simplicity that is in Christ” mean to you? How does this frame of mind affect our ability to be wise?
