Questions or answers?

Usually I run my Bible study pretty conventionally. We sit around and read the passage. I ask pertinent questions and we have a discussion around each one.

This week, however, I decided to do something a little different. Instead of looking for answers, I was looking for questions. There was no discussion or answers allowed - only questions. I was the scribe while everyone in the group thought about the questions they could ask about the passage and its application.

The end result was more than 7ft of questions on a roll of continuous paper. It was more than I expected. The group felt perhaps a little more exhausted than usual, but they did feel that they had gotten a lot out of the exercise and had really examined the passage.
