This is a really helpful checklist to have on hand when you study the Bible, especially if you are new at inductive Bible study.  You might even want to print it out and have it in your notebook or Bible.

Questions to ask yourself when studying the Bible:
  • Have I asked God for insight into His Word?
  • Am I studying for relationship with Him?
  • Have I read the verses immediately preceding and following the passage?
  • Have I scanned the surrounding chapters?
  • Have I looked up words I don't understand to discover the range of possible meaning?
  • Have I asked who, what, where, when, why, how, wherefore?
  • Have I looked for logic indicators such as then, therefore, but, also?
  • Have I identified any Old Testament quotes and checked their context?
  • Have I used a Bible dictionary to identify and learn about the people and places named?
  • Have I used a study Bible to identify and read parallel passages?
  • Have I checked cross-references in a study Bible to see what else the Bible says about this subject?
  • Have I kept from focusing on details to the exclusion of main ideas?
  • Have I double-checked my personal interpretation with reliable commentaries?
  • Have I asked what this passage tells me about God, myself, and others?
  • Are there any sins to be avoided?
  • Are there commands to be obeyed?
  • Have I thanked God for the privilege of studying His Word?

I can take no credit.  This checklist was given to me when I was taking a Bible study methods class.  I just retyped it for you!  But I'm glad you like it!
