10 Bible Study Topics to Spark Up Discussions in 2022

“Faith, wait up!" Loveth called, walking briskly, as she broke into a small run trying to catch up with Faith.

“What's up? What's chasing you?" Loveth asked, breathing heavily as she approached Faith. She hunched her back a little, tying her breath.

Wearing a confused look, Faith asked, “What's up with you? How long have you been trying to catch up with me?" 

“Since the last bend," Loveth replied, standing straight. “I've been calling after you, but your mind seems to be very far away."

“My apologies please. I was ruminating on a lot of things."

“Where are you off to in such a rush?"

“Church. We have a special Bible study meeting this evening." Faith replied, and resumed walking.

“Oh, good then. We can walk together. I was supposed to go back home after seeing you. Maybe I'll take this opportunity to attend your church today," Loveth said, smiling, as she walked by her side. 

Faith returned the smile. “I promise, you'll enjoy the service!"

“So why were you running after me?" She asked

“Yeah, about that, I need your help with my project." 

“Shoot."

“I'm collating about fifty topics from the Bible. Very important topics at that. All topics in the Bible are important, but I need topics that can arouse neck deep discussions in a meeting for believers."

“Hmmm... So where do I come in?"

“I have 40 topics already. I need 10 more. Actually, I put down a rough outline of about 60 topics before. However, some of the outlined topics are intertwined. Hence, they all shrunk into 40 topics."

“I believe you'd want to write a thing or two so let's get to church first so we can sit and discuss. It about 3 minutes walk from here, and service starts in 40 minutes time."

They got to the church premises in a couple of minutes time, and found a corner to sit, as the auditorium was already getting filled, and they needed a quiet place.

10 Bible Study Topics to Spark Up Discussions

Loveth searched her bag for her diary and a pen. They said a short prayer before starting the discussion. Below are some of the topics Faith listed for Loveth... 


1. Faith 

Hebrews 11:1 aptly describes faith as the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. As believers, we live and walk by faith. There are numerous instances in the Bible just like we see in Romans 1:17 and Hebrews 10:38. In Romans 1:17 

This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” (NLT)

Hebrews 10:38

And my righteous ones will live by faith. But I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away.” (NLT)

Therefore, believers are enjoined to live and dwell by faith. Even Jesus said in Like 17:6 that “If your faith is as little as a mustard seed..." No matter how little it is, a believer is expected to have faith, walk by faith, live in faith and act in faith especially to God's Word, either from the scriptures, or the one Gos spoke to them personally.


2. Love

This is the basis for which God sent His only Son to the earth in the first place (John 3:16). It was as a result of the love He had for us, that even when we were undeserving of it, He sent salvation to us in person of Jesus Christ, to reconcile us back to Himself. The love between a mortal man and woman, no matter how deep and lovely it seemed is not to be compared to that which the Lord has for us (the world). He doesn't restrict His love even from the unbelievers. The Bible says also in Matthew 5:45 that He gives rain to the just and unjust. He sent His Son to die for the good, the fair, the bad, the worse. He didn't restrict the salvation to a particular set of humans. Therefore, God's love supercedes all other kinds of love. 


3. God's Promise of a seed to Abraham

Some people believe that the seed God promised Father Abraham is Issac, however, the seed is referring to Jesus Christ. God had been promising Abraham a seed for himself. However, in Genesis 21:12, after he finally birthed Issac, God was still telling him his seed will be called in Issac. 

Jesus Christ is the promise. Issac had Jacob, and Esau. Jacob got the inheritance from Issac instead of Esau, Jacob had twelve sons. Reading the book of Matthew, there's an extensive list of the lineage of Jesus from the beginning. How about you take a stroll to the book of Matthew to check out which lineage it is...


4. Restitution

The matter of restitution is important to a believer. Quite sadly, what most people don't know about restitution is that it has to be inspired by the Holy Ghost. There are some situations that do not need restitution, and there are some that need it. It boils down to whether or not the Holy Spirit asked you to do it. If He did tell you to go ahead and restitute, He'd definitely tell how to go about it. You may refer to Genesis 33: 1-11, Micah 6:8 for further reading.


5. Rapture and the Second Coming

Many people shy away from this topic, and a lot of people are scared of the topic. It should be a thing of joy that our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ is coming back for us His children to take us with Him. I mean, there's no fulfilment in this world, except that we're doing God's will. Asides that, all the riches and pleasures of this world amounts to nothing. It's all vanity. The rapture is supposed to bring comfort, not fear. So we should be excited and expectant of the the coming of our Lord. On this topic however, most don't know rapture is quite different from the second coming of Christ. 

Rapture is the transformation of believers from the surface of the earth to meet our Lord in the air. While the second coming, is when He comes back with us saints, to finally judge the world and dwell in the new Jerusalem. For references as regards the subject of rapture, you may refer to 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18, 1st Corinthians 15:23, 51-57, Philippians 3:20-21, Luke 21:34-36, Ephesians 5:22, 1st Peter 5:4 and much more. On the other hand, you may refer to the following verses for the second coming - Revelations 19:11-21, Revelations 1:7, Revelations 21:1-3, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 etc. 

6. The Lord's Prayer.

7. Moses and the Israelites.

8. The Birth of Jesus.

9. The Resurrection of Jesus.

10. Coming of the Holy Spirit.
