Studying the Bible with the Inductive Method
The Bible Core Course will not impart theology telling you what you shall believe. The principle is that the Bible is self-explainable. Instead of handig you out prefab doctrine this course operates the opposite way: we read what is written in the Bible, we study the historical, cultural and textual context, we figure out, led by the Holy Spirit, what message the text was transmitting to the original readers and we apply the truths which we found in our personal lives.
Highlights of the Inductive method:
- You spend time with God´s word; it is the Holy Spirit teaching you
- You learn to put aside subjective predjudices and to read Scripture as if it would be the first time
- You learn to interpret the Bible in its historical context
- You learn to apply the priciples in your personal life that God has shown to you through Scripture
- You learn to proclaim God´s truth
