Discovery Bible Study

The guide below can be used for groups to discuss passages of the bible. This is based on the 'Discovery Bible Study' method used around the world. No matter whether you've been following Jesus for 50 years or just want to explore the Christian faith and what it's about, you can do DBS!

1. Follow up (if applicable): How did you go with your plan from last week? What was challenging?

2. Read, Read and Retell

    • Choose a passage from the Bible
    • Have someone read the whole passage
    • Have someone else read the passage again (in another translation if possible)
    • Have someone else retell the story from memory

3. Discuss

    • What does this passage say about God?
    • What does this passage say about us/people?
    • What could God be saying to you in this passage?

4. Commit:

    • In light of this passage, what is God asking you to do this week? (make a plan)
    • Who are you going to tell about this plan this week?

5. Conclude:
