Philip Project – Bible study assignment instructions


If you are in Philip Project
And you are in the bible study workshop And you have to present this coming Saturday
What do you have to do? What do you have to do?
All we are asking you to do is To produce a set of questions
Based on that passage you have been assigned Hopefully you received an email from me
Telling you which bit of 2 Timothy to look at
Concentrate just on those few verses Just on that bit from 2 Timothy
And prepare a list of questions On that text
There are three types of questions We are looking for
We are looking for Firstly, those observation questions
To help us to look at the text To look at the bible
To notice what is there And to understand what Paul is saying
To Timothy in that letter Secondly, there should be some
Understanding questions Some questions that are just helpful
To notice and to understand Some important words
Some important themes The big idea
In that text So that we understand
What Paul is actually saying And teaching us
In that section of the letter And finally,
There should be some application questions How does this apply
To me, today In my life, today
So, hopefully you have good balance A good spread of those
Three different types of questions About six or eight questions
Is what we are looking for Write them out
Print them out On a piece of paper
Maybe have enough for your small group There will be about six
Or seven people In your small group
If you don’t have a printer Just bring one copy
We will take a photo of it And we will use out phones
That’s OK as well But hopefully it’s not too stressful
You know, I do realise It is an investment of time
But just a word of advice If it does get stressful
And you are scratching your heads Wondering, “What questions do I come up with?”
If it gets to that point Just go back to the text
Just go back to Studying it for yourselves
Pray to God to help you understand What he is saying to you
Applying it to your own lives Before you get to the point whereby you say
How do I teach it to others? You know
Apply it to yourselves Pray it for yourselves
Understand it for yourselves Before you do that bit of
Preparing those questions Hopefully that is a helpful bit of advice
For you Well, again, Thank you so much
If you are preparing I really, really do appreciate it
I really, really am looking forward To seeing you and
Learning with you From God’s word
This coming Saturday And see you then!
