Below are some lessons that I have developed specifically related to studying the Bible.
I have included, or will eventually include, lesson topics related to better understanding the Bible, as well as encompassing Old and New Testament surveys.
During any discussion of Bible Study, the subject of which translation to use comes up. There are pluses and minuses associated with every translation. Some are harder to understand, but perhaps more accurate; some provide better English translation of the Hebrew Old Testament, while others are more accurate with respect to Greek New Testament translation. A couple of my favorites are the "New International Verion (NIV)" and the "New American Standard Version (NASB)"
i would encourage you to read different passages in both the Old and New Testaments and compare these passages among several various "mainstream" translations to find one that you are comfortable with. There are several online Bible web sites that will enable you to accomplish this efficiently. As an example, see Bible Gateway’s web site. Bible Gateway not only provides over 20 different English translations, it provides multiple translations in over 40 different languages as well. What an incredible tool for bringing God’s Word to all nations!
