Thessalonians Bible Study – Oh, My soul, my heart, longs for our Savior, Our God, Holy Spirit. I want to know them.
I want to bathe in the Word and feel His love through the pages of the Holy Bible.
The best way to know Him is through God’s Word.
Many Christians struggle to read the Bible. Either they don’t or can’t make time, or they don’t understand what they read or the context for it.
I find that sad because there is so much richness and goodness in the Bible. There’s so much nourishment for your mind, body, and spirit.
If you attend church on Sunday you’ll get some takeaways – some small snippets. Sometimes a message will connect deeply with you. Other times, it may miss the mark.
If you’re like many other Christians, you have no idea what to do with the Bible other than to look up key verses that are meaningful to you.
Using my method of starting at the top layer, then exploring scripture, and finally excavating for meaning and applying the Word to your life, we’ll study 1 and 2 Thessalonians deeper and deeper using a variety of Bible study methods. Self-paced, but support is available. You’ll love learning and living Thessalonians!

Why Immerse Yourself in Scripture?
Immersing yourself in Scripture is different from reading fragments in a devotional.
Devotionals are wonderful. They give inspiration and offer enthusiasm about certain verses.
Immersing yourself, however, means wrapping yourself up in the chapter or verse and experiencing it in such a way that it becomes a part of you. And, because it becomes a part of you, it changes you.
I read Bible studies and spend time in The Word, but I yearn to dig deeper. To truly immerse me in His Word.
1 and 2 Thessalonians Bible Study
When my kids were young, and we were homeschooled, I studied learning modalities to help them understand what we were studying. We all learn differently. My one son could absorb information just by reading. My other son needed something more tactile to allow the material to sink in.
Digging into the Bible is much the same way for adults. When you combine ways to learn and study, you get more from what you are learning. I kept those principles in mind when I created my own deep Bible Study learning process.
In this eight-week course, we will excavate 1 and 2 Thessalonians. We will dig in deep and study this book with the appetite of a voracious learner.
While there are PDFs and worksheets to help us on our journey, we will be using mainly the Holy Bible to do all of our studies for this course. There’s no better way to read and understand scripture than by actually reading the Bible.
We’ll wrap ourselves in the main themes of Thessalonians:
Thanksgiving prayer (1 Thessalonians 1)
Prayer and guidance for pure Christian living (1 Thessalonians 2-4)
The Second Coming of Jesus (1 Thessalonians 4)
The Day of the Lord (1 Thessalonians 5)
Encouragement to remain faithful during persecution (2 Thessalonians 1)
Clarification about the Day of the Lord (2 Thessalonians 2)
Exhortation to remain faithful in pure Christian living (2 Thessalonians 3)
Each week, we’ll cover a chapter and examine it, thoroughly.
We’ll explore the major themes, places, and figures through:
- Bible Reading Focus
- Weekly devotion
- Printable Verse Cards
- Worksheets and other printables
- Character studies
- Verse mapping
- Questions to dig deeper/Practical Application
- Inductive studies
- Fill-in-the-blank scripture to help us remember what we read
- A fun activity, puzzle, or coloring sheet based on the chapter that week
- and much more
While you will receive all of the above material each week, you can pick and choose what you do or do some now and save some for later in future study.
The material will be split into Foundations, Exploration, and Excavation – start with the most important and add layers or activities to submerge yourself into the chapter and setting based on the time you have.Exploring 1 and 2 Thessalonians: Layered Bible Study
In Foundations, we begin with prayer and reading the chapter for the week. We’ll focus on three key verses for the week and have a short devotional based on the week’s chapter or theme.
In Exploration, we’ll dig a bit deeper as we work our way through questions designed to help us understand this week’s reading and apply it to our lives. We’ll also work to memorize several verses including in the week’s chapter.
In Excavation, we will deeply examine the text by verse mapping several verses in the week’s chapter and highlighting and marking key terms, people, and places in the text. Some week’s Excavation will also include a deeper character study of the important figures we “met” that week.
Bonus materials are included each week and will vary but may include playlists featuring songs about the theme(s) of the week, puzzles, and other printables.
This course is more than verse mapping and Bible study. It is a map to guide you through His Word and connect the Word of God to your life today.
Won’t you join me today as we immerse ourselves in the books of 1 and Thessalonians with verse mapping and Bible study and nourish our hearts and souls with the Word of God?
