Why should the Sunday school teacher study the Bible?

a)      In obedience to the great commission
A Sunday school teacher does a good work as he/she carries out the Great Commission that contains these particular words of the Lord – “Go ye therefore and teach all nations”. Matt 28:16
b)      To be empowered by the Holy Spirit
2 Tim 3:16 says that all Scripture is breathed by God and is useful for doctrine, correction, instruction in righteousness and for reproof. That the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished to all good works.
c)       So Sunday school children may have life
In John 5:39, Jesus says that we must search the Scriptures for they testify of Himself and in them we have life. Sunday school teachers should therefore search Scriptures
d)      To succeed in God’s purpose for the Sunday school
In Josh 1:8, God instructed Joshua that the book of the law should not depart from his mouth, that he should meditate on it day and night and do what was written in it so his way would be prosperous and he would have good success.
e)      To rightly divide the word of truth
In 2 Tim 2:15 Paul instructs Timothy to “study to show himself approved to God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”
