Bible Study Lessons

Facilitating an effective Bible Study group isn't difficult if you have the right tools and an effective lesson plan. The Bible consists of 66 Books and over 2,200 chapters. Breaking it up into segments is the key to effectively structuring a Bible Study program - whether in person or online.

JournalOwl has several free bible study journeys for you to choose from to help you lean into God’s Word and apply it to your life.

Why Bible Study Lessons Help

Bible study lessons are an invaluable tool that help you consistently study, comprehend, and apply God’s Word to your life. 

  1. Get in the Word – a planned out guide to help you consistently be in God’s Word
  2. Comprehension – study lessons are created to lead you to understanding by breaking down the reading into smaller portions and through journal prompts. Each Journey has general Bible prompt questions as well as a list of community-provided questions.
  3. Application and Review – some journal prompts help you discover how to apply scripture to your life. And by journaling in our secure platform, you have the opportunity to go back to your answers and review what you have learned, any goals or action steps you set, and see how you have grown from when you started the study.

Example Bible Study Lessons

We have a Bible Study Journey for every Book of the Bible as well as several topical Journeys you can choose from. Some of our topical studies include:

Using Bible Journeys as Lesson Plans for Bible Study

If you want to lead your own Bible study, take the burden of planning off yourself and use one of our Bible Journeys as your lesson plan. Each Journey already has the reading assignments split up into daily plans and you can use the journal prompts as discussion topics with your group.
