Bible Research

This primer is intended to help you and your church to start, lead, develop, grow, and manage Bible studies. From small group Bible studies as well as larger Bible Studies to even very large Bible studies, the principals apply to both small and large groups. The difference is how you lead and structure them, while all are Bible-centered led by godly prepared teachers.
Here is the Bible Reading Chart for using the Inductive Bible Study method. Here you can write down and record all of your observations, what your have learned, your questions, and even make a commitment on what you will do with the information from God's most precious Word! Feel free to make copies of this for your personal use; more are available in our book, Into Thy Word!
The Into Thy Word Bible Study Method is the "cheat sheet" for using the Inductive Bible Study method. Here are all of the inductive steps laid out for you to use to get the most out of your Bible studies! Keep a copy of this tucked in your Bible. Feel free to make copies of this for your personal use; more are available in our book, Into Thy Word!
This method of studying the Bible is to prepare lessons or sermons. Or perhaps you want to dive into the riches of God's most precious Word personally; this method is for you too.
Outlining the Bible is the primary means to prepare one to teach the precepts of Scripture in a clear and logical way. This is designed for the pastor, Bible study leader, or curriculum writer to learn how to examine the text and then draw out what is there in a logical and systematic way.
This form can also be used to teach any book of the Bible, even If you are not experienced!

Inductive Bible Study is a method for learning how to know the Bible for all its worth by our best efforts. We do this through learning the tools and skills to help us observe the text, dig out the meaning, and then apply it to our lives.
This method is for new Christians to learn how to start out with to veteran Bible Teachers who want to be refreshed. This is an excellent tool to teach others how to learn the Bible.
The Bible is not just about a list of dos and don'ts, but a love letter that lets us know what is best. We must be people who remove the objections, and study the Bible. We have to be willing and able to build the bridges to create the right common ground, so people can get more out of what is in the Bible.
Many pastors are going into their pulpits ignorant, either not knowing the tools or how to use those tools. This is why a lot of pastors are not leading Bible studies in our churches, and why so few churches even have a Bible study.
Why should we listen to a Book? Why is the Bible to be our authority for faith and practice-for life?
