What would be a good topic for a Bible Study?

I'm trying to find an interesting Bible Study theme/topic that stands out from traditional Bible Studies. I would like to have a study that involves everyone and covers a topic the women in this group could relate to.

  • Thank you to those who provided helpful answers. I appreciate the ideas and the website link. I am really liking the Proverbs 31 topic so far since it covers a lot of the other topics that were mentioned.

  • Why not delve deeper into the women in the bible? Help women of the Xtian faith discover the power god has given them (although some men try and take it away) by studying some prominent women who are featured in the bible and what they did to contribute to Xtianity.

  • Bloodletting and evil in the old testament--just about anywhere you look.

    Treatment of women like possessions instead of people--either testament.

    Lot's "holy" incest with his two daughters. Ahhh biblical family values!!

    David (beloved of god) and his forcible rape of another man's wife and subsequent murder of that man so he could marry her. You should also discuss his possession of over 400 wives and 900 concubines. Ahhh, more biblical family values.

    Or just skip to the sweetness and light verses like you always do.

  • To WitchQueen: I'll assume it's okay for me to respectful respond to what you said since you addressed these issues and opened up the topic. :-)
    Thank you for commenting with an honest response to my question. You brought up some really important points.
    You are absolutely correct in saying that there much evil and violence in the Old Testament. You pointed out some really important examples. A lot of things that occurred in the Old Testament were almost unspeakable and extremely horrible. All of the examples you used along with all the other records of sin and evil mentioned in the Old Testament were written for a purpose though.
    God used these particular individuals and their stories to show us that everyone falls short of God’s glory. No one (accept Jesus) is perfect. These people were considered to be followers of God and yet still made horrible mistakes.

  • To WitchQueen (continued): David had one of the closest relationships with God as we can see throughout the Psalms. Yet, David was not perfect and still yielded to his sinful desires. Seeing these mistakes listed in the Old Testament reveal our need for a Savior.
    These errors in the Old Testament were just another way of preparing the path for Jesus. They were not intended to condone any of these types of behaviors. Scripture clearly states the error in each of these situations.
    I also feel the need to apologize to you for the rude remarks you have received from other “Christians”. No one deserves to be treated in such a way. We may have differing views but we can all express them respectfully. You are exactly right…you have the right to choose not to believe in God. That is your decision and one that only you can make.
