Learn effective strategies for powerful and sound biblical interpretation.

Spring 2018

Learn how to walk through a book of Scripture and follow the author's main idea in every section and verse. You’ll see why the structure and historical occasion of a book is significant to its meaning. Practice drawing application that aligns with the central idea of the book, the Gospel, and the whole Bible. You’ll gain a better understanding of one book, and the ability to use what you’ve learned to study other books of the Bible.

Attend class one Saturday a month and study for five hours a week.
