An Inductive Bible Study into the Word of God
What is Inductive Bible Study?
Inductive Bible study is learning how to exegete the Bible for all its worth with our best efforts. We do this through observing the text, digging out the meaning, and then applying it to our own lives. Thus, inductive Bible Study enhances the exegesis process by enabling us to read the Bible for more impact, value, and significance. In practice, we first examine the ideas and words of the text, look at the meanings and interpretations of the text, and finally we are led to the conclusions and applications of what we studied. The process involves the five W's and H; WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, and HOW. So in observing a particular passage we always ask;
Who is writing or speaking and to whom?
What is the passage about?
When does this take place?
Where does this take place?
Why does the author write the passage?
How does the passage fit in within the context?
The concept of Inductive Bible Study is to get you personally & intimately involved with the subject matter. We use a straightforward investigative approach to Bible reading, and build the context for each statement it contains. That’s where we find God’s truthful precepts—principles for life. Inductive study is the tool used to collect those precepts to build a God-Glorifying, Bible-Centered worldview with clear applications to live the abundant, victorious life in Christ.
This method encompasses three essential steps;
- lessons are lead by a facilitator and are designed to incorporate observation of Biblical text,
- exercises are designed to assist individuals in the understanding & meaning of Biblical text,
- students are encouraged to take what they learned and apply it to their own personal lives.
