bible study notes

Welcome to the bible study section of prayerscapes!


These free notes have been organised by theme, and can be used for individual or small group study. Each of the bible notes are presented with linking resources where available, such as soundtracks, instrumentals (for worship or response/prayer times), short films and art images (for reflection or meditation). The bible topic pages also contain links to downloadable and printable pdf versions. To the right can be found a summary of the resources available & links to each one.

The scriptures are teaming with references to music, singing and musical instruments! This page lists the important instruments that were involved in worship, and orders them in their family groups (percussion, strings and woodwind). It also considers the roles of these instruments in priestly worship and wider life in society (e.g. the trumpet was often used as a way of calling the army to battle).

A great deal is written in the new testament about loving other people, from Christ's parable about the good Samaritan, to Christ's life - and death. Here is a page about loving other people that features over a dozen scriptures on this, drawn from different parts of the New Testament.
