Are You a Wise Virgin . . .

or a Foolish One?

A 3 Part Study for those waiting for Jesus

By Terry L. Craig and Jo Ann Halvorson



Since Jesus told this parable to His followers (in hopes they’d choose to be wise), we'd like to visit the Parable of the Ten Virgins in a way that will help us understand just what made those foolish virgins foolish . . . and what made the wise virgins so wise.


This Bible study is a journey.  It’s a journey that may lead you to discover more about yourself, your faith, and what the Lord is looking for in your life.  Are you willing to go on the journey with these ten virgins? Are you willing to see them as people, like you and me, to look at them with honesty, and then to look at your own life with the same honesty? If so, you’ve already taken a big step toward becoming a WISE virgin!   No one but you and the Lord will see the answers you give to the questions in the study (unless you choose to share them with others).  Be honest with yourself—and be wiser for it.


This Bible study is presented to you free of charge.  You are free to print, copy, and share this study AS LONG AS you keep it intact (with the footnotes, credits, and copyright notices at the end) AND you don’t sell or use it for commercial purposes.
