How to Enjoy Reading and Studying the Bible

Some people may find reading and studying the Bible to be hard, while others find it inspirational, encouraging, and uplifting. Reading the Bible and coming to know the Lord can be a life-changing experience.

Making a habit of reading from the Bible every day is a good habit to get into. It will help you get to know the Bible and get to know the Lord.

When studying the Bible, you go a little deeper than just reading it. You can actually dig in and ask yourself some questions to help you comprehend and apply what you have read.

I like to study one book at a time in the Bible so I can get a clear understanding of what that book is about rather than skipping around to different passages of Scripture.

10 Questions to Ask Yourself While Studying the Bible

I have ten questions that I want to share with you that may help you as you study the Bible. I’ve broken them down into two sets of questions.

The first set of questions, you can ask yourself, while reading and studying the Bible, is the who, what, where and when questions:


Who is writing this passage of Scripture?

Who is it about?

What is going on in this Scripture?

What can I learn from this Scripture?

Where is the Scripture taking place?

When is this Scripture taking place?


The next set of questions you might like to ask yourself is more about your senses:


What do you see in this Scripture?

What do you hear in this Scripture?

What do you feel in this Scripture?

How does this Scripture make you feel?


I hope applying these questions to your Bible study time will help you to dig deeper into God’s Word and come out feeling like you are really getting to know and understand what the Bible is all about. If you would like to join us for our daily Bible study you can subscribe to Daily-Bible-Reading, where we share a daily devotional Monday through Friday.

You may also like to check out some of the books I’ve written about different books of the Bible or specific topics. I take you through the book one day at a time sharing a brief commentary, the daily Bible Scripture, a few questions for contemplation and a prayer for the day. All of my books are available on Amazon.


May God bless you as you read and study the Bible,
