Activity and Coloring pages
We are getting many requests for
Activity pages, coloring pages and crafts on specific studies.
All our activities can be found in our
Activities/Download section. They are generally built
around our Textual and Special
studies. We will do our best to point you to appropriate
pages, but we do not have the resources to develop special pages
at this time.
Our vision is to develop studies for every major character and
theme with emphasis on the Bible books. It will take some time
to cover them all. Because of the demand, we will be adding more
as quickly as possible.
If you want to know how many times a
specific word is in the Bible. I will no longer answer questions

What does crucified mean?
The Romans nailed a person on a cross, lifted the cross and put
it in a hole and left the one on the cross to die. The crucified
one was held on the cross by their nailed hands and feet. It
normally took about 3 days to die.

When was Noah born?
In 4,000 B.C. Since time is measured backwards and forwards from
the approximate birth of Jesus, this means he was born about
4,000 years before Jesus was born.

found in no one else (Jesus), for there is no other name

The Old testament (Law of
Moses) prepares us for Jesus. When Jesus came, the Old Testament
was fulfilled and taken away. The New Testament is the history
of the life of Jesus and His church.

What is praying in tongues.
It was one of the gifts given by the Holy Spirit where
people had the ability to speak in a foreign
language without learning the language. The only way this gift
could be received was by the laying of of the apostles hands.

How do I get the Holy Ghost.
There is a lot of misunderstanding about the indwelling of the
According to Acts 2: 37,38, one is given the Holy Spirit
at the point of baptism. This is the indwelling of the Holy
Spirit that helps us live holy lives. Everyone who believes and
is baptized is given this gift.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are a different issue. In
New Testament times there was no Bible, so the Spirit gave
certain people special temporary powers like speaking in
tongues, prophesying, interpretation of prophecy, etc. to spread
and verify the truth. These gifts are listed in I Corinthians
12:7-11, and not available today.

The Body of Jesus (The Church)
Is the old testament for the Jewish
No. "These things (Old Testament)
happened to them as examples and
were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of
the ages has come."
The Mosaic Law (covenant) was
fulfilled in the New Testament
"How much more,
then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit
offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from
acts that lead to death,so that we may serve the living God! For
this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those
who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now
that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins
committed under the first covenant."
Is there a right way and a wrong way to
No. Prayer is an individual action.
Why did God lie to Adam and Eve? He
told them that eating from the tree of all knowledge would kill
them but it did not. Does that mean I should listen to the
serpent aka The Devil?
God cannot lie! As long as Adam and Eve ate of the
fruit of life they would live. When the ate of the tree of
knowledge they were separated from the tree of life, could not
eat its fruit, and began to die.

Noah did not have Shem, Ham and Japheth until he was 500 years
When God called Noah, he already had Shem, Ham and Japheth. So,
judging from the example of Noah, who waited 500 years to have
children, it probably too Noah a while to have three sons.
Noah, and his family went into the ark when He was 600 years

What is the difference between respect
and honor from the Bible? Does one imply the other or not? How
do these affect us with those over us in regards to obedience?
Romans 13 tells us plainly to submit to the ruling
authorities. God sets up nations
and brings down nations. We are not to rebel against
authorities. (Study I Peter 2:13-17) We are to show respect to
all and honor what God has established, but...obedience is

yourselves whether it is right in God's sight to obey you
rather than God. For we cannot help speaking about what we have
seen and heard.'"

Why do women have to bear children in
order to be saved???
The salvation of any woman is based on faith in Jesus as her Lord

women cannot have children, choose not to have children or

Bible story for Matthew 6
This is part of the sermon on the mount. Which story: giving,
prayer, fasting, treasures or worry?
We first read of Timothy in Acts 16:1. He was a young
man who lived in Lystra. His mother and grandmother were
believers and his father was a Greek. He traveled with Paul.
I want to know about the Israelites.
The name of Jacob,
the son of Isaac, was change to Israel after he wrestled
with an God. Israel means "You have wrestles with God and men
and prevailed". God promised Abraham, Israel's grandfather,
that a great nation would come from his family. Israel's sons
ended up in Egypt. Israel became a great nation, were delivered
from Egypt and were given the Promised Land.
The story is told from the book of Exodus to the end of the Old
Jesus was an Israelite.
I have been teaching the 4's and 5's in
Sunday school. One 4 yr. was reduced to tears when we talked
about Samson killing the lion. I felt so bad that I had done
something to frighten her. Earlier in the term one little boy
commented we shouldn't do that when telling about Joshua taking
the Promised Land in battle. I explained to him why this was
done through God, etc. and the next Sunday he acted blood
thirsty, instead, and wanted to know if any people were killed
in the next battle. I said, yes. Then he was happy and said ,
yaaaaay! I hope you see my problem. The Bible's violence is
easier to explain to adults. I wonder if anyone has ever
considered the way the Bible is taught to small children or if
its updated in its choice of subject matter in relation to the
age of the child. Have you ever taught Sunday school to a group
of little ones? Probably not. It is usually women. I think some
psychology is needed here to do a better job. What do you think?
I am a mom and grandmother, but this has taken me aback and I
I have taught small children. and I was taught the
Bible stories when I was small. The reaction of your little
student is not unusual...it is the nature of boys. Maybe the
reaction of your little boy was because he is saturated by the
violence in television, movies, video games, etc. If so, this is
a parental problem. Your little girl is a sensitive soul.
Regardless of cultural circumstance, if we take all the violence
and evil out of the Bible, we have not told the real story of
the great love and judgment of God. How can we teach the most
important story in the Bible without telling our children about
the crucifixion of Jesus?
The Israelites were commanded to tell their children the
It is interesting that Bible writers very seldom dwell on the
violence. They state it simply and go on. The emphasis is on the
reason for violence...anger, judgment, etc.

Paul uses the example of running and boxing. In the
Olympics of his day, only the winner got the prize. All the
faithful win the victory crown.
"I do all this for the sake of the gospel,
that I may share in its blessings. Do you not know that in a
race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in
such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the
games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that
will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last
Therefore I do not

Since i am the religion of Hinduism...why
do you believe in this GOD?
There are many religions in the world that worship different gods.
The challenge all of us face is: How do we know which god is
the real God?
There is no god like the God of the Bible!
The God of the Bible is loving, gracious and is involved in
our lives. He is our creator and knows what is best for His
creation. He protects us by telling us what to do and not do. He
does not want any of us to be lost, and has provided a way for
us to be saved and live with Him forever. This way is Jesus,
the Son of God. Since the God of the Bible is loving, just
and absolutely fair, those who are not in Jesus will be
lost forever because of their lack of faith.
God does not expect us to have blind faith, so He has
provided His word (the Bible).
Since Jesus is the primary focus of the Bible, proving Jesus
was actually raised from the dead provides a solid basis for our

In a few weeks we will have an in-depth 12-part study of evidences

2. Use Bible helps like Bible dictionaries, Word Studies, etc. Go

3. Use our

Uncle Noah, I am half Jewish and half

No.Jesus came to sacrifice his life for all of us. Race has

a Greek (Gentile) father. (Acts 16:1)
"...for all of you who were baptized into

believe. I am 27 and have never heard anything about this topic

Animals are a great blessing from God designed to show his power
and nature...and to be a source of companionship, protection,
food, shelter and clothing.
"For since the creation of the world God's
invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have
been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse."
Animals are used by God to fulfill his purposes, but they have no
soul. Animals were not created to understand matters of faith
and obedience, so they do not sin. They have no choice. They act
instinctively, not faithfully. Heaven is reserved for the family
of God who have been saved from sin through their faith and

Yes! If they are preaching to women. No! If it is in the assembly

"For God is not a God of disorder but of

but must be in submission, as the Law says."
(I Corinthians 4:33-34)

Interpretation from the book of Amos
We have not yet developed textual material from the book of Amos,
but our outline might be helpful. This is a prophesy of Israel
being taken into captivity.
When I did something bad,
does God forgive me again ?
"But if we walk in
the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with
one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us
from all sin."
Notice...we must walk in the light and have
contact with the blood of Jesus. I do not know how old you are,
but you understand the need for forgiveness. Forgiveness comes
when we are in Jesus.
John 3:16 talks of believing & salvation.
Mark 16:16 talks of perishing when not believing. Why do you
join baptism with belief in salvation? Respectfully, Dave.
The answer is the conversation with Nicodemus in John 3:1-15.
Jesus tells Nicodemus that he had to be born again with water
and the Spirit. In Acts 2:38, Peter tells believers to be
baptized for the remission of sins and to receive the Spirit.
Mark 16:16 says: "Whoever believes and
is baptized will be saved." If a person does not believe,
there is no desire to be baptized. According to Acts 2:38, we
get forgiveness of sins at the point of baptism. In Acts
8:26-39 Philip taught the gospel to the Ethiopian. Baptism was
obviously part of the gospel because the Ethiopian (a believer)
asked to be baptized.

must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning."

Bible story of Obedience found in Romans 13:1-5 ?
We have not yet developed a textual study of the book of Romans.

Romans 13:1-5 is a great study of the power of God over
nations...and our relationship with good or bad governments. The
story of Peter and John in Acts 4 shows us that we must do what
is right regardless of what those in authority, but never with a

When Jesus comes back will there be a new

"After that, we who are still alive and are
left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet
the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."

Jesus deals with this issue in Mark 12:18-27.

nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in
What was the name of Noah's wife?
The Bible does not tell us.
What does this name mean?
Marlin is not a Bible name.
Do you believe that God speaks to us
through the Holy Spirit? Or do you believe that we are to get
our instruction solely from the word of God?
Both! The Holy Spirit speaks to us through the words written by
the Bible writers. Truth is found in the words written.
"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful
for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in
righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly
every good work."
(II Timothy 3:16,17)
"But even if we or an angel from heaven
should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you,
let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now
I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than
what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!"

baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were
therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order
that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory
of the Father, we too may live a new life.
If we have been united with him
like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with
him in his resurrection.
Who is the Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is part of what is called the Godhead.
"When the Counselor comes, whom I will send
to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out
from the Father, he will testify about me. And you also must
testify, for you have been with me from the beginning."

Where did the Bible come from?
The Bible is a collection of 66 books written by 40 different
authors over a period of about 1,600 years. The books of the Old
Testament were selected with 2 questions:
1. Was the book written by a person to whom God had spoken.
2. Was it recognized to be from God.
The books of the New Testament were chosen by 5 rules:
1. They were known to be from God.
2. They were written by an apostle or prophet of God.
3. They could be proven to be genuine.
4. They had the ability to change people lives.
5. They were used by the early church.

word of God)- The power.
Prayer is both offensive and defensive.

Eternity is a difficult concept for all ages. It has no beginning

The story is in John 8:3-5. This story is found only in the book
of John. We have not developed material in the gospel books that
is not in Luke.

It depends on you. Gluttony is in the same category as being drunk

you for you question. Although I do not know the particulars
related to your question, I do know the at in Ephesians 5:28 God
instructs men to love their wives as they would love their own
bodies. The Lord wants husbands to treat their wives with love
and consideration. In Romans chapter 13 we see that God
has appointed the government to protect people. Women have
rights under the government and beating another person is a
breaking of the law. In 1 Corinthians 7:11 we see that God
allows couples to separate although it is His desire that they
reconcile and try to work things out. The problems in a
marriage are often complicated and yet we can be active in
prayer that they Lord will touch the hearts of all concerned.
What Would it be like to do Adam's work?
It would have been very exciting and important. There is always

The names you came up with were great.
I am teaching a lesson on "do you best"
to 8-10 year old what stories in the bible do u think I should
use that will be broken down to then in simple form?
Tell you students that when they do something they are
"Slaves, obey your
earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of
heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win
their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ,
doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly,
as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know
that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does,
whether he is slave or free."
I have to do a bible study for kids about
false teachers...do you have any ideas for activities?

Tell your students you are going to teach a story with one
wrong fact. Tell them the story and have them tell you the wrong
Break your students into small groups and have them tell a story
with one wrong fact. This will force them to make sure every
other fact is correct. The one wrong fact should be very tricky.

I was just wondering, at what age is it
right to give away your most treasured gift? I am only 12 years
of age, yet, I am having urges toward living objects. Please
help me... I am having a lot of trouble controlling these urges.
Every person has urges. Controlling urges is part of living,
created by God.
You might have an urge to jump off a 20 story building. You would
not do it...because it is not good for your life situation. You
might have the urge to pick up red-hot piece of metal. But, you
know it is not in your best interest.
Urges are to be used in God's purpose in the marriage
relationship (one man and one woman)...and not before
There is one other issue that is very important:
It is not healthy for a person of any age to look at, listen too
and read about these things. Television, movies, modern music,
magazines, etc. are full of tempting things. Avoid them!
Talk to your parents.
I just read in the Bible from Matthew
6:3, how do I explain to my 4 years old daughter about this
Explain it in the context of verses 1-4. Don't go around bragging
about good things done.
"Be careful not to do your 'acts of
righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you
will have no reward from your Father in heaven. So when you give
to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the
hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be
honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their
reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let
your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that
your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is
done in secret, will reward you.
I am looking for the story of Daniel and
the lions that my Sunday school class can understand ages 1-8.
Daniel and the Lions
Why is it important to read the bible and
The Bible is the only source of the truth of God revealed to us.
God does not ask us to have blind belief, so he has given us
more than enough evidence to believe.
Did Jesus crucify himself for sinners?
Jesus did not crucify himself. The Jewish religious leaders
convinced the Romans to crucify Jesus.
Jesus could have stopped his crucifixion, but he willingly gave
his life for our sins.

and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions

"Who, being in very nature God, did not
consider equality with God something to be grasped (held on to),
but made himself nothing, taking the very nature off
a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in
appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to
death— even death on a cross!
My sons are 12 and 14 years old. Although
we have attended church, but not on a regular basis, they were
never involved in any church activities or studies of the Bible.
They do know certain parts of the Bible, but not in full detail.
Where would you suggest I begin when introducing Bible studies
to them as at this age? Should I begin with the Creation?
It depends on whether creation is an issue in their
lives (school, etc.) If they are not sure, we have a section on
Evolution is an issue in schools. They can go to our
creationevolution.org site for scientific and logical
There is something about learning the Bible stories that give
young people a sense of the power and glory of God.
I would suggest you have them begin with our study of Genesis.
Wait, there is no god. Oh and from what I
know Adams first wife was Lilith and she left him cus she
believed woman should have a right in how they feel, She left to
hell and then God gave Adam Eve and told him she would listen to
his every word.
This is not Biblical, but you have the right to believe anything
you want. Now all you have is the impossible job of proving it!
Topic come little children come to me.
"People were also bringing babies to Jesus
to have him touch them. When the disciples saw this, they
rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said,
'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for
the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the
truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a
little child will never enter it.'"

Our purpose is to answer Bible questions. What you are asking for

careful what you believe that comes from traditions.
Why does Paul say for men not to have

A man should look like a man and a woman should look like a
Praise God for your biblical answers to
people's questions! But...occasionally your answers seem more to
reflect modern American Protestantism than what Scripture
actually says. One example would be your statement that children
are not born sinful. But David puts it very clearly in Psalm
51:5: "Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my
mother conceived me." As descendants of Adam, we have all
inherited our sinful nature, from birth. But that's not the end
of the story. "Just as the result of one trespass was
condemnation for all people, SO ALSO the result of one act of
righteousness was justification that brings life for all men."
Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!
I wish you were right. Unfortunately, the concept of original
sin is engrained in Protestantism all over the world. You
are right, sin came through one man...and salvation comes
through one man (Jesus). If you understood me to say children do
no wrong, I apologize. The issue is not whether children do
wrong...the issue is whether the child is guilty and condemned
for doing wrong.
If we believe every wrong thing a child does (without any
awareness of right and wrong) means the child is condemned, we
face some serious theological difficulties.
In Romans I :20, Paul makes an interesting statement:
"For since the creation of the world God's
invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have
clearly seen, being understood from what has been
made, so that men are without excuse."
Paul uses the argument that God has given us
understandable evidence that He exists...and there is not
excuse not to believe in Him. But, we have a problem: Nature
does not reveal Jesus, the only Savior. (Acts 4:12)
Salvation depends on understanding the Word of God (the
Bible). Small children cannot read or comprehend the concept
that sin separates sinners from God. Salvation depends on
that Jesus is the only solution to the sin problem. A small child
does not understand there is a problem, so to the child there is
no solution needed. God expects repentance and obedience. A
small child has no concept of these big religious words.
It seems unreasonable that God (the creator of each child) would
condemn His creation when it is impossible to understand what
God requires for reconciliation.
At some point in a child's life there is understanding...and guilt
kicks in. At this point belief and obedience are necessary.
Did you have 10,000 animals?
Actually those who calculate these things estimate the Biblical
Noah took from 45,000 to 50,000 animals into the ark...and still
had enough room for all the food needed.
Illustrations of Jerusalem at the time of Nehemiah needed please.
We have not yet developed material on the book of Nehemiah.
Why do you say that people should not be
forced to keep Sabbath? No one is forcing any one. But it will
be a law to keep Sunday!
Noone is being forced to assembling with other Christians on
Sunday. We have the choice to obey God or not.
The difference in the Sabbath and Sunday is simple. The Sabbath is
an Old Testament concept. The Old Law has been taken away and we
live under a the new system. The old law is no longer binding.
How important was the crucifixion of
Jesus to Christians?
"Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to
be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he
promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures
regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant
of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared
with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the
dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him and for his name's
sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from
among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith."
What does it mean.....where two or more
meet there I will be also?
In the context Jesus is talking about his disciples agreeing. The
larger context is that where a small number of believers
gather...Jesus is there.
