Once upon a time, I thought Bible study sounded like a drag… boring and not much fun. I’d try to read the Bible occasionally, but I never made it very far. As a new Christian, I knew I needed to study God’s Word, but I just wasn’t motivated.

It wasn’t until several years later, that I really began to FALL IN LOVE with God’s Word! Bible art journaling was a big help in that process, as well as simply seeing the truth and application of God’s Word in my life.

Have YOU fallen in love with His Word yet? If not, I pray that you will!

But even for those of us who’ve been studying it for years, the Bible is full of mystery and new things to learn and understand! And it really to helps to have fun Bible lessons for adults, to spur us on to gain a greater understanding of the Scriptures.

And since you’re reading this, I know you’re asking: “Are there any free online Bible studies?” Oh my goodness, there are tons!

Of course, you can always buy a Bible study guide, enroll in a class, or invest in a bunch of study aids like Strong’s Concordance or the Harmony of the Gospels. BUT, there are so many FREE Bible study lessons for adults available on the internet, you can totally get by without paying even a dime for Bible study.

Until, I discovered this Revelation Explained study from Through the Word. You can find the different parts of this study (7 in all) in the YouVersion Bible app, or you can get the plan in its entirety in the Through the Word app.

Like I said before, these 24 Bible study lessons for adults are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to free studies you can find on the internet! So if you were looking for something specific that I didn’t list here, keep searching. 😉

  1. Can I get this in the mail box for free cause I’m looking for me and my mom can do it over the phone together before she goes to bed. Thank you

    1. Hi Patty, you would need to contact the author of each individual plan to find out if they can email or snail mail it to you. Probably the best option is to print out the plan you want to use… you could print two copies, keep one and mail the other to your mom. That’s what I would do.

    1. You’re welcome Chris! Praying that God will guide you in deeper understanding of His Word, and for you to walk ever more closely with Him each day! 🙏🏻

    1. Barbara Austin

      Hi Linda, I would recommend contacting the author of the free Bible study you’re interested in, to see if they offer a printable or if you can purchase a printed copy of their study. Of course, you can also order lots of great Bible studies through Amazon, such as the 100 Days of Grace and Gratitude book!

    1. Barbara Austin

      Hi Billie, if you’re wanting to know God, you’re in the right place! I recommend starting with an easy Bible reading plan, like #1 on this list—the 90 day reading plan. I pray God will reveal Himself to you through His Word!

    1. Hi Kim, I would try searching Google for the kind of Bible study courses you’re looking for. I don’t know of any offhand, but I’m sure there might still be some available. Most Bible study plans I know of are online.

  2. Barbara…This site has been such a benefit to my church’s Craft Circle. It guides us to applicable Bible studies for each month, with a journal prompt that we use with journals we actually made for ourselves. It is a blessing and we thank you for making it available to all of us.

    1. Hi Jan! You’re very welcome, it makes me so happy to hear that you are all benefiting from the Bible studies! 🤗
