Most adult teachers want to use creative teaching activities that involve learners in Bible study. But some passages seem hard to approach.
For example, Psalm 135 is a great passage, but you may have trouble thinking of creative ways to get your students to dig into it. I spent several hours studying Psalm 135 before I wrote a single line of the Teacher's Toolbox lesson plan for that passage.
Of course the most important thing is to pray, asking God to give insight into how to bring this passage alive to the class, how to make it "exciting Bible study" for them. It is only as God opens our minds that any of us can effectively teach other adults. Prayer is the basis of every Daily Prep and Teacher's Toolbox I prepare.
Ultimately God gave me some ways to approach Psalm 135. In the Teacher's Toolbox, I suggest getting their interest with a brainstorming activity on greatness. Then guide them through a word study on what "hallelu Yah" means, ending up with the class reading some verses of Psalm 135 but substituting "hallel" for "praise" and "Yah" for "the Lord." Follow that with small groups discussing different reasons for praising God: He chose me, He rescued me, He established me, etc. The final application activity has learners writing their own "Hallelujah Psalm" and sharing it with the class.
Every passage in the Bible offers opportunity for exciting Bible study, but we've got to use the right tools to open that door.
