6 Point Approach to basic Bible Study

  1. Pray and ask God for Understanding
  2. Read a Passage of Scripture you want to study, then read all the Cross Referenced Scriptures pertaining to the passage (Noted either in the center of a two column/page layout or at the bottom of the page by verse. Find the verse(s) you are reading note the Scripture referenced and read each.)
  3. Identify ways these Scriptures apply to your life
  4. Write everything down in a journal, date the entry, and refer to it often
  5. Put the noted applications into practice
  6. Pray and ask God for the grace to walk out the applications on a daily basis

For advanced study;

  • Study Specific Words

Look up the Hebrew (OT) or Greek (NT) meaning of certain words in Scripture. Don’t forget to look up the meaning in the Noah Webster Dictionary as well. You will learn the deeper meaning of words and see a completely different facet of Scriptural interpretation as you learn. Also choose one word like “peace” and look up the Scriptures throughout the OT/NT to learn about peace. The best resource for word study which includes the Hebrew and Greek Lexicon for study is the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, available online.

  • Read Commentaries

Commentaries are entire works where a specific author(s) comment on Scripture providing personal insight into the deeper meanings and interpretation of biblical text providing historical, cultural, and theme insight to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of Scripture. My personal favorites are Charles Spurgeon, Matthew Henry, and John Gill.

  1. You are welcome Susan. I wanted to mention the other day that you should get a big journal and start taking notes like you are in class. You are on your way. Do not fear the healing and restoration that is coming as you learn and grow. ❤️
