Bible Study Methods

Learning Basic Bible Study Methods

An Inductive Guide to the Study of the Bible,

Using the Gospel of Matthew

By Allen P. Ross

 

 

This series of Bible studies is designed for people who want to learn how to study the Bible in a meaningful way, or for people who might need resources for teaching people how to study the Bible. This first series will focus on the study of narrative literature in the New Testament.

There are a lot of folks in the church who have never really studied the Bible in any depth, but who would like to learn how to do it. Frequently the church will simply tell people to read the Bible, or to begin a personal Bible study.  But without some guidance this soon becomes confusing and overwhelming. There are a lot of different types of books in the Bible–so where should people start reading? People might start reading in Genesis, but they soon find themselves in passages that are difficult to comprehend (with strange cultural settings) or that seem totally unrelated to their own needs and interests and rather boring (like genealogies of names that are too difficult even to pronounce). Even if they begin reading in the Psalms, or Prophets, they all too often get lost and discouraged with it.  It would certainly make things easier for them if they were guided in their reading.
