Email Tips: Make Verse Lists

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, December 19th, 2015 .

Teaching your kids to make a list of things they want for Christmas is not helpful.

Teaching them and yourself to make a list of verses is one of the greatest things you can do to help understand the Bible.

Drawing connections between different passages in scripture is where you take Bible study to another level.

  1. Start with a question or topic.
  2. Write it at the top of a paper or computer file.
  3. Read through Paul’s epistles with this topic in mind.
  4. Record every verse that speaks directly or indirectly to the topic.

This will give you a synopsis of what Paul says about it. Perhaps start with making a verse list about the mystery, or Paul’s unique message.

You will be surprised by the number of verses that talk about it.

Keeping these lists as you read through the Bible will help you formulate what the Bible says about a number of things.

Once your list grows, make sure you rightly divide the prophetic passages from the mystery passages.

For His glory,

Justin “making a list” Johnson
