This is a composite course that lays a foundation for studying the Bible and then leads the student in Bible study exercises built upon that foundation. Bibliology integrates multiple subjects to provide an understanding of what the Bible is, where it came from, how it was written and why it is to be studied. How to Study the Bible is a comprehensive Five-Step Bible Study Method that combines word studies in the original languages with circumstantial, biographical and topical studies.

The final step is to paraphrase the passage studied. Many Christians have a fragmented Christian education where their knowledge of Scripture is disjointed.

Bibliology Objectives

The objective of Bibliology and How to Study the Bible is to provide an approach to studying the Bible that produces an accurate and unified understanding of Scripture.

Upon completing this course you will have the tools necessary to study the Bible in the original languages, a knowledge of Biblical culture that will allow you to better understand the Bible and a framework to integrate those passages studied with the rest of the Bible.

The ultimate intent is that in correctly handling the Word of Truth you will come to know what you believe, why you believe it and have the ability to earnestly contend for the Faith.
