In the intro to this series, we look at why it even matters to read our Bibles in the first place, and why it really is not just meant for your pastor.
In Part 1, we explain what the Inductive Bible Study method is, how to apply it, and provide a downloadable guide.
In Part 2, we look at how understanding different genres, such as narrative, poetry, or parables, can shape our interpretation of Scripture.
Have you ever thought about the fact that Jesus wasn’t originally preaching to 21st Century America? In Part 3, we look at how our contextual lens plays a role in understanding Scripture.
It took me a long time to connect the dots of the Bible as one big story. Here, we do just that, complete with a downloadable timeline and major events of the Bible in chronological order.
In Part 5, we take a look at why it matters to put on the breaks and not rush to application too quickly, along with how we may miss out on deeper meaning.
In Part 6, I share some of the tools I have found helpful along the way for my own study and for preparing Bible studies.
In Part 7, we walk through a passage in Ephesians using the Inductive Method. We practice studying this way together!
In the final part of the series, we conclude with discussing why it matters to actually absorb what we’re studying, and not merely collect intellectual information.
