Bible Study: Session 1

Introduction to Bible Study

This session introduces us to the different methods and forms of Bible Study.

Bible Study: Session 2

Historical Approach

Historical methods are the most common form of Bible Study, getting at the “who, what, why, when” questions. 

Bible Study: Session 3

Literary Approach

Knowing what type of "literature" each book of the Bible is helps us understand the myriad of ways in which to interpret scripture. 

Bible Study: Session 4

Theological Approach

Scripture operates as both Law and Gospel in our lives. It convicts and comforts. How do we know what we're hearing? And are certain texts "all law" and some "all gospel" - or is it more nuanced than that?

Bible Study: Session 5

Formational Bible Study

With formational study, we are seeking scripture to help transform our lives and our relationship with God at a much deeper level. 

Bible Study: Session 6

Meditative Approach

The practices of meditating on God’s Word an integral part of how we listen to God and ruminate on the Word in order to probe, ponder, and explore so that the words of scripture become God’s Word in our lives.

Bible Study: Session 7

Directing Imagination helps you deal with scripture at both a conscious and subconscious level. The more vividly you are able to imagine these scenes, the more deeply the story will embed itself into your memory.
