Adult Bible Study - Ten Commandments

Ten Commandments Divisions - Hebrew.jpg

Many Christians are surprised to find out that there are more than one number of the ten commandments.  This is not intended to be an exhaustive treatment of the ten commandments, but a chance to look at a few things in particular that are 1) misconceptions about the commandments and 2) have a better appreciation for why God would give us such a complex set of imperative commands.

Adult Bible Study - Bibliotheca

If you were to have the time to sit down right after reading this and have uninterrupted time dedicated to read you Bible in devotion...would you be able to read your Bible for 60 minutes?  30 minutes?  15 minutes?  How long before you became distracted from things inside of your head or on the page that you're reading?

I've come across a resource that has greatly reduced the propensity for me to be distracted while reading Scripture in a devotional setting.  I'd like to share it with you.

In preparation for this study I'd like you to set aside 30 minutes to read the Bible, just read.  I want you in the story.  It doesn't matter what you choose to read, just that you read.  I don't want to give you a distraction during a time when i'd like you to be focused on reading, but...keep track of the things that pull you from the text.  What distracts you?  For how long does your mind wander?  Does this lengthen the entire time you're "reading"?
