Bible Study Challenges
JournalOwl Bible Study Groups is designed to take the participant deep into God’s word. Did you know that Israel lost faith in God’s promise to give them the Land when their spies (chapter 13) reported that the Cannaanite cities were highly fortified with powerful armies? Their loss of faith forced them back into the heat of the desert to wonder for another 38 years!
The word itself, Deuteronomy, means “repeating the Law” and that is exactly what this Book of the Bible is all about. In chapters 1 through 10, this book details what God has already done for His people. By learning from the lessons of the past, this book emphasizes the need to study history so that mistakes are not repeated in the future. In this book, we are also reminded of having the Word of God top of mind. This naturally occurs from reading the Word continuously, discussing it, and ta...
Let’s take a closer look at Joshua, a divine record of the conquest of Canaan, and the following division of the Land among the twelve tribes of Israel. Did you know that Joshua was the captain of Israel’s army and a personal servant to Moses? If you participated in the Online Bible Study Group for the Book of Exodus, that was covered in Exodus 17:9, 10 and also Exodus 24:13. When Moses died, he chose Joshua to lead His people into the Promised Land. As God’s servant, Joshua was strong and ...
Today, let’s look at Judges. The second of the “Historical Books” in the Old Testament. Did you know that Judges has 21 distinct chapters? The Book of Judges is the second of the Historical books in the Old Testament which is 929 chapters in total. That’s a lot of reading!
In this Online Bible Study Group, you’ll dive into each chapter by reading scripture itself and then answering thought-provoking questions about each chapter.

As you’ll read and discuss with others, Elimelech died in Moab, along with their two sons. This left Naomi with two daughter in laws: Oprah and Ruth. When the famine lifted, Oprah decided to stay in Moab, but Ruth...
Today, let’s look at Leviticus. The third book of the Old Testament in the Holy Bible. Did you know that Leviticus has 27 distinct chapters? The Book of Leviticus is the third book in the Old Testament which is 929 chapters in total. That’s a lot of reading!
Does reading the Bible feel daunting? With 66 books and over 1,200 chapters, anyone would feel overwhelmed. According to statistics, 1 in 8 (12%) of Christians admit they rarely or never read the Bible. While another study by Lifeway Research in 2016 purports that 1 in 5 (20%) Americans said they have read all the Bible at least once. At JournalOwl, we’d like to believe the statistic by Lifeway Research in that 1 out of 5 people in America have read the Bible at least once front to back.
The name itself means ‘beginning’ or ‘birth’ – did you know that? This first book of the Bible is designed to teach you about the beginnings of Earth and what God’s plan is for his people. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (1:1). We know from this opening that God is the creator of the Heavens and Earth, which he made for a plan and purpose.
