Here you’ll find free Bible studies for women about women in the Bible.
Women in the Bible
Looking for Bible studies about women in the Bible? You’ve come to the right place.
Here you’ll find short but probing Bible studies for all the women of the Bible. How you choose to enjoy these studies is up to you. You can:
- Search for women by name.
- Search by topic of their stories.
- Start at the beginning of the Bible and work your way through.
Women in the Bible Studies
With these Bible studies, you can study on your own or gather together a group of friends and study together. These short Bible studies cover not only the famous and familiar Bible women like Eve, Sarah, Esther, and Mary, but the unnamed and obscure as well. Work your way through the Bible, one Bible woman at a time. Each lesson includes scripture reading, commentary, study questions, and a prayer.
Worn Out Women Bible Study
Feeling overwhelmed by life’s problems? Are you struggling to hold tight to your faith while the world tries to tear you away? Find comfort and encouragement in these stories of worn out and weary women in the Bible. Learn from Rizpah, Hagar, Naomi, the widow of Nain, and the prophet’s widow.
Wicked Women in the Bible
Though we certainly hope we’re not like these wicked women in the Bible, we can certainly learn from the actions of Lot’s wife and daughters, Potiphar’s wife, and Samson’s wife.
Bible Love Stories
Whether you’re a newly married or it seems like you’ve been married most of your life, we can all benefit from examples of what love should look like. These may not be the love stories you’d expect, but each of these Bible couples demonstrates an aspect of true love. From Abigail we see a godly woman married to an evil man. Though her marriage was less than ideal, we see how she made the most of a bad situation. In Elizabeth we see a couple married for decades who weathered through difficult times but held tight and stood strong. Priscilla demonstrates a couple working together in harmony. Whatever they did, they did as one. Then, there’s Gomer, a tragic story of a wayward woman loved unconditionally by a godly man.
How to Study the Bible On Your Own
My desire with All God’s Women is that it will inspire you to want to study the Bible more in depth on your own. But maybe you’re not sure how to do that. It’s easy to quickly read the Bible stories and assume that what you notice on a surface level is all there is to it. Take it a little slower, however, and you begin to notice things you didn’t catch before. Start asking questions, and your understanding of the Bible takes on a whole new level.
Here are some questions to guide you along as you read about the different women in the Bible:
- Who was this woman? (genealogy, family, marital status, social status, character)
- Why is she included in the Bible?
- What does her story tell us about God?
- How are you like her?
- What can you learn from her story?
- How is God using this story to speak to you right now?
- If you were already familiar with this woman, what is something new you learned about her?
- If she is unnamed, why do you think God didn’t include her name?
Asking questions should hopefully lead you on a quest to learn more. By using a study Bible or Bible study tools, you can gain an even greater understanding of what the story or passage is about.
As you delve into the stories of the Bible women, I’d love to hear what new observations or lessons you glean. You can comment here, share on social media, or contribute in the All God’s Women Bible Study group on Facebook.
How to Lead a Home Bible Study
1. Assemble a Bible Study Group
Look around you. Find a few friends who might enjoy getting together to learn about Bible women. These can be women from your church or Sunday School class, neighbors, or even family members.
2. Set a Time For Your Bible Study
Decide how often you’d like to meet. While weekly is a logical choice, it might be easier to get women if you do every other week. Decide together if mornings, afternoons, or evenings are best. Choose how long to meet, whether an hour, and hour and a half, or two hours.
3. Choose a Location to Meet
Meet at your house, church, or coffee shop. It doesn’t matter where you meet as long it’s convenient and everyone is comfortable meeting and sharing there.
4. Meet Together
As everyone arrives, greet each woman, checking to see how she’s doing. Once you feel confident everyone who’s coming is there, open with prayer.
If this is your first week together, explain what you’ll be doing. Introduce the woman of the week. Use the Worn Out Women Bible study guide to assign scripture reading assignments, memory passage, and daily learning activities.
Go around the circle and ask each woman to share specific highlights she got out of her personal Bible study time. If need be, kick if off by sharing your own observations, but it’s always good to get others sharing themselves rather than depending on you. Keep the discussion moving by commenting or asking follow-up questions. Make sure that everyone participates. If a woman isn’t contributing, draw her out by asking if there was anything she noticed that no one has mentioned yet. You’ll be surprised sometimes at how the quietest women will often have some of the deepest observations.
Keep the conversation moving. If someone gets off topic, gently steer the discussion back to the Bible study.
Say the memory passage together several times. Encourage each other to memorize it in the week ahead.
Assign the next week’s woman to study. Make sure everyone knows how to listen to the All God’s Women podcast to supplement their personal study.
Close in prayer.
You don’t have to be a teacher to lead a home Bible study. All you need is a few friends and a desire to grow together in your walk with the Lord. You’re each holding the others accountable and guiding each other to learn more about the Bible.
If you take my challenge and start a women of the Bible study, drop me a line and let me know how it goes. I’d love to hear from you.
Find a Bible
Looking for a new Bible for yourself or someone else? Here are a few Bibles I’ve been blessed to review. We each have our own preferences for type of Bible (study, devotional, chronological…), Bible version (NLT, NKJV, KJV, NIV, CSB), binding (leather, hardcover, even online), and more!
