Ask Hashem to enable you to answer five questions that will encourage, convict, inform, or put a smile on other participants' faces.

 

The best way to study for the meeting is to read over the 26 questions a few times before you read the portion of scripture we will be discussing.

 

For each meeting, most people's study time is 2+ hours. 


Since this is a Jewish bible study, please only quote Messianic Jewish or Traditional Jewish bibles and commentaries. Complete Jewish Bible, Tree of Life Bible, or any other Messianic or Traditional Jewish bible. Some can be found in a free online version or you can do a search on Google for the verse with the name of the bible or version (TLV, CJB). For Tanakh only use JPS.

All comments need to have a foundation in the portion of scripture we have studied.

 

When you share your answer, please give the number of the question that you will be sharing.

 

Please give chapters and verses of all scriptures that you mention.
