Three Step Process to Writing a Chain Reference Bible Study
Step 1: Pick any Bible verse that interests you.
John 3:16, read and discuss in a group.
Step 2: Look in the center column for a cross reference to the above verse.
Romans 5:8, read and discuss in a group.
Step 3: Continue the process until time expires. For example, a Bible study is from 7:30 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. Begin to wrap it up around 8:45 P.M. so that your guests may have an opportunity to give final thoughts or questions.
I John 4:10, final verse of the study for the night.
Note: it may be a good ideal to pick a passage where there are a lot of center column references so that you limit the number of dead end trails. If you reach a dead end trail simply start a new chain reference.
Always leave room for the Holy Spirit to enter the Bible study.
Try not to limit yourself to any rules as this study is designed to allow individuals with no time or limited time to prepare for a lesson on the spot, with no preparation time. Just open your bible and go. You can read verses or the entire chapter; your focus can be broad or narrow. It’s your study – enjoy.
