Six Questions You Should Always Ask When You Study the Bible [Episode 30]

Posted By

Welcome to the first ever Five Minute Friday podcast!

Every Friday I’m going to release a quick discipleship tip. Each post will be short, five to ten minutes at most. Now for today’s tip.

You can create a quick overview of a bible passage by asking six simple questions journalists ask when writing a story.

Just ask these six questions:

  1. Who?
  2. What?
  3. When?
  4. Where?
  5. Why?
  6. How?

Concrete examples of how to answer these question are in today’s super short Five Minute Friday Podcast.

What you’ll get out of these questions:

1) Greater Knowledge: You’ll spot details you might otherwise overlook.
2) Deeper Understanding: You’ll take more away from the passage because these six simple questions will increase your engagement with the text.
3) Better recall: You’ll create more connections in your brain around the text making it easier to recall.

The First Step

Read a passage of the Bible and jot your answers down to these six questions on a notepad. If you want to get MUCH more out of this exercise. Follow this process: Read the passage once. Note all you can remember WITHOUT looking back at the passage. Then review the passage and see what you missed in terms of answering the six questions.
