Free Chapter by Chapter Inductive Bible Study Notes of Many Books in the Bible

For the last eight years, I have led weekly inductive Bible studies for groups of college students and young adults. We go chapter by chapter and verse by verse through books of the Bible with an occasional topical study or character study. As someone who has spent extensive time preparing every week, I know it is helpful to have some resources to use, both for personal study of the Word or for leading a Bible discussion. Since I built this website I have a good platform for sharing these resources with other believers who desire to dig into Scripture.

These study notes contain outlines, cross-references, Bible study discussion questions, lessons to learn, and applications. Feel free to print them, copy them, or share them. I only ask that you remember these are are personal study notes and are only meant as a supplement to your own study, not a replacement. I hope you can find some helpful information inside. See links below for chapter by chapter study notes.
