Title: How to Study the Bible Seminar!?


1
How to Study the Bible Seminar!?
  • Into Thy Word Ministries
  • We teach people how to study the Bible in a
    simple, clear, and concise way, since 1978!
  • www.intothyword.org

2
Read 1 Timothy 13-7
  • Open in Prayer!
  • What do you want to get out of this presentation?
    What are your goals?
  • Do you realize that if you are a Christian, and
    have read the entire Bible, you are in the
    minority? Does this scare you?
  • How do you feel about your level of Bible
    understanding?

3
Why should we study the Bible?
  • Because, to be a growing, effective Christian, we
    need to get what is in the Bible.
  • We have to end the apathy, arrogance, confusion,
    and falsehoods coming out of the church.
  • We have to stop our self-grandstanding and keep
    preaching the message of Christ crucified,
    because it is about Himnot us.

4
Why should we study the Bible?
  • That way we can take the Wonder Christ has given
    you and know it!
  • That way we can take the Wonder Christ has given
    you and share it with others!
  • That way you are exposed to wondrous
    opportunities in encountering Christ even more in
    order to be better transformed for the work He
    has for you!

5
Why should we study the Bible?
  • Be the person who reads and studies Gods Word
    much, and apply the precepts to all aspects of
    your life!
  • We glorify our Lord when we yield ourselves to
    His precepts, we are giving Him glory which is
    the primary fruit from studying the Bible!

6
Why should we study the Bible?
  • We cannot do what He has given when we refuse to
    yield ourselves to our Lord.
  • (Prov. 17 35 910 John 14-15 Gal. 220-21
    Phil.16 310)!

7
Why should we study the Bible?
  • The study of the Bible matters!  
  • We must study the Bible because it is the
    foundation for life.
  • God even commands us to study His Word as the
    priority before we do anything else (Deut. 6
    6-9).
  • Because we are to love Him (Deut. 64-5).

8
Why should we study the Bible?
  • Because Jesus demands we teach others the Word (2
    Tim. 314-17).  
  • Because we are to fear, trust, understand, and
    respect Christ as LORD (Prov. 17 35 910) 
  • As a Christian, we need to live a life of
    distinction and the only way to receive the
    knowledge of that distinction is to get into the
    Word! 

9
Why should we study the Bible?
  • We do not want to be barcode Christians who do
    not care what is in the box because only the
    label matters, or that Christianity is just fire
    insurance from hell! 
  • We must seek out the truth and the answers that
    we need from the final authority, and not the
    ways of the world!

10
Why should we study the Bible?
  • The point of Christianity is to be a transformed
    person through self-surrender to our Lords
    holiness, through His Word and prayer! This is
    what glorifies our Lord (Gal. 220-21 Phil
    31-14)!
  • He must become greater I must become less. John
    330
  • REMEMBER THE BIBLE IS GODS LOVE LETTER TO
    YOU!!! 

11
The Main Goal of Bible Study
  • DONT JUST INTERPRET IT, BUT
  • APPLY IT TO YOUR LIFE!!! 
  • John 35, 30 Gal 220-21 Phil. 310!

12
The Main Goal of Bible Study
  • Unfortunately a lot of Christians think that all
    we have to do is read the Bible, and do what it
    says, and there is nothing to interpret.
  • Or they will react against the educated
    professional Christian who is a teacher,
    scholar or pastor.

13
The Main Goal of Bible Study
  • They do not want the Bible to be some kind of
    obscure book they cannot understand.
  • But what they are in fact doing is reading the
    Bible without any understanding and making
    excuses for it and it is very doubtful they are
    doing what it says! (Of course some scholars
    love to wrap things in confusion!) 

14
The Main Goal of Bible Study
  • Some Christians have no problems with
    interpretation, it is the application and
    obedience that they have trouble with.
  • We tend to understand the precepts of the Bible
    so well that we will rationalize them away, such
    as do everything without complaining or arguing
    (Phil. 214). Thus we complain and argue all the
    time.  

15
The Main Goal of Bible Study
  • REMEMBER BE SURE TO INCORPORATE WHAT YOU KNOW
    INTO YOUR LIFE!!!
  • You search the scriptures because you believe
    they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures
    point to me (John 539)

16
The Main Goal of Bible Study
  • Since the Bible is Gods authoritative Word
  • We will spend more time in it!
  • That is why you are here today?!
  • Are we prepared to allow the Word of God to get
    in us and make changes and to transform and renew
    our minds for His glory? (Romans 12) 

17
Do you struggle with the Bible?
  • Do you believe that how much you are in the Word
    will dramatically affect every decision and
    action that you will ever face and make?
  • Is the Bible in your home read much, but studied
    little? Or read little and studied little? Or?
  • What are you going to do about it?

18
Do you struggle with the Bible?
  • How does the lack of solid Bible leaders and
    Bible knowledge produce a weak church, ripe for
    false teachings and political power plays?
  • Do you believe that how much you are in the Word
    will dramatically affect every decision and
    action that you will ever face and make?

20
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • Read Acts 1711-12 Because we can gain so much
    more from His Word, precepts and call.
  • Inductive Bible study is learning how to exegete
    the Bible for all its worth with our best
    efforts.
  • We do this through teaching people the tools and
    skills to help observe the text, dig out the
    meaning, and then apply it to their lives.

21
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • Inductive simply means to use logic induction
    (reasoning faith reason) by examining the
    particulars, facts and essence of a text first
    before making any conclusions.
  • Inductive Bible Study enhances the exegesis
    (Bible Study) process by enabling us to read the
    Bible for all its impact, value and significance.

22
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • We first examine the ideas and words of the text
  • This leads us to the meanings and
    interpretations
  • Then we are led to the conclusions and
    applications.

23
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • We are interviewing a passage, we are also
    allowing His Word to intervene and interview us!
  • We do this with reverence, respect and humility
    without our preconceptions or agendas.
  • Seeking what God is actually saying before we
    seek what a passage means.

24
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • Then we can apply it to our life in a more
    effective and effectual manner.
  • In other words
  • I want to know Christ and His Word better, to be
    convicted and impacted so I can line my life up
    to His.

25
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • Because if not, we will have Eisegesis or
    Isogesis!
  • This means to lead in or reading into the
    Scriptures as in to introduce into the text our
    own presuppositions, ideas and thoughts while
    ignoring what is actually there to satisfy our
    own agendas and opinions.

26
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • This is using our personal interpretation or
    agenda or presupposition, inserting or expressing
    ones own ideas, bias, seeking what we want it to
    mean rather than the actual intended meaning of
    the passage.
  • This ignores the language, context and culture,
    leading us to incorrect conclusions, inconsistent
    understandings and also leads to heresies and
    false teachings!

27
What is Inductive Bible Study?
  • Thus, a bad Bible Study method enables us to read
    into a text what is not there and draw out what
    God is not saying.
  • Isogesis causes us to think this way In other
    words, dont confuse me with the facts I have
    already made up my mind, I want to think my way
    and or lead my life my way not His Way.

28
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • Check out Acts 1711 2 Corinthians 42 2
    Timothy 215 and see how God wants us to study
    His Word!
  • Inductive Bible Study is not just for a pastor or
    Bible Study leader, it is for anyone who wants to
    know and grow in our Lord.

29
Why Inductive Bible Study?
  • Consequently, faith comes from hearing the
    message, and the message is heard through the
    word of Christ. Romans 1017
  • You can do it!

30
Why We Do this?
31
What is Inductive Bible Study?
  • Inductive Bible study has 3 primary areas
  • First is Observation
  • Second is Interpretation
  • Third is Application

32
What is Inductive Bible Study?
  • There are many ways to study the Bible and the
    best way is that you do it!
  • There are other common ways to study the Bible
    and all have their advantages and shortfalls.
  • Inductive is far the best way to know His Way!

33
First is Observation
  • This is carefully going over the text to see what
    is going on, the who, what, where, when, how,
    and why.
  • This is done by teaching you how to pull out the
    facts through the nature of Scripture and how to
    avoid presumptions and fallacies, because Gods
    Word speaks for itself.

34
Second is Interpretation
  • This is taking what is said and finding out what
    does the text mean.
  • How to interpret literally in the correct
    context.
  • That is we never take out of Gods Word what is
    not there, or read in our will as His.

35
Third is Application
  • This is taking the plain meaning and putting it
    to practical use.
  • This is the, how shall I respond to the Word.
  • What sin to get rid of, what commands to yield
    too, the pitfalls to avoid, the actions to engage
    in, and the promises we are to keep.

36
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • Look at the whole text in its context and pulls
    out facts, interpret, and then apply them to your
    daily life.
  • This works as long as the exegete (you, draw
    out and from and not read in) is honest to the
    text.

37
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • Reading into the Bible ones wills and agenda
    leads to false teaching!
  • Reading from the Bible, gleaning what is there in
    context, leads to glorifying our Lord!

38
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • This is taking the plain meaning and putting it
    to practical use.
  • This is the, how shall I respond to the Word.
    What sin to get rid of, what commands to yield
    too, the pitfalls to avoid, the actions to engage
    in, and the promises we are to keep.

39
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • At Into Thy Word, we have an 8-step process. At
    the heart, are the 3 steps of Observation,
    Interpretation, and Application.
  • Our extra steps are not to be convoluted, but
    allow you to draw out even more. Because we
    capitalize on how our minds work, so you get more
    out of your experience in His Word.

40
What convoluted looks like
41
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • Because of the way our minds naturally work, we
    expanded the 3 step Inductive process into 8
    steps. This is done in a logical and systematic
    way. This is not adding irrelevant information,
    causing distraction, or making it convoluted, but
    rather making the process easier and more
    insightful.

42
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • Our unique process of Into Thy Word allows each
    step to build upon the previous step in a logical
    and systematic way
  • This paves the way for the next step. So you
    learn more and are able to progress, learn and
    grow at your own level.

43
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • STEP I KNOWING THE KNOWABLE BRINGING OUR MIND
    TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD!
  • This is about Prayer and Attitude, two essential
    factors that will enable you to excel if you do,
    or fail if you do not.

44
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • STEP II HOW THE METHOD OF GETTING INTO GODS
    WORD
  • The first two steps is showing you how to start,
    choosing your text, and how to go about it.
  • The next 5 steps are the inductive process of
    observing then learning, then applying it into
    your life.

45
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • STEP III III (B) OBSERVE IT ASK WHAT DOES IT
    SAY?!
  • This has to transpire so we can dig out what is
    there.
  • OBSERVE IT ASK WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

46
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • Since we naturally interpret and jump to
    conclusions in our fallen human thinking, we just
    start the interpretation process, because you are
    going to do it anyway.
  • We then place a governor to slow you down,
    without sacrificing your enthusiasm and
    creativity, so we can do it right.

47
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • STEP IV QUESTIONS ASK AND LEARN!
  • We then ask key essential questions to dig out
    more that we may have missed.

48
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • STEP V KNOW IT!
  • Then we can really start to make sense and
    internalize the implications and truth, so it
    effects who we are at the very existential core
    of our being.
  • This needs to take place before we can apply it.
    Because we need to be the people of God in order
    to do the work of God.

49
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • STEP VI APPLICATION!
  • We take a careful look on how we can do this with
    honesty and forethought. And then take on the
    responsibility to reciprocate, that is telling
    others!
  • Then, the last step is taking the previous steps
    and writing it down for lasting remembrance and
    commitment.

50
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • STEP VII CHARTING YOUR PATH
  • This is so we can keep track what we learn as you
    progress. You can use this step throughout the
    inductive process.
  • And we pray this in order that you may live a
    life worthy of the Lord and may please him in
    every way bearing fruit in every good work,
    growing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 110

51
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • My son, if you accept my words and store up my
    commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom
    and applying your heart to understanding, and if
    you call out for insight and cry aloud for
    understanding, and if you look for it as for
    silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,
    then you will understand the fear of the LORD and
    find the knowledge of God. (Proverbs 21-5)

52
The Three, Basic, Essential, Inductive Bible
Study Questions
  • What does this passage say?
  • What does this passage mean?
  • How does this apply to me?

53
The Basic Into Thy Word Inductive Bible Study
Questions
  • 1. What does this passage say?
  • 2. What does this passage mean?
  • 3. What is God telling me?

54
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • 4. How am I encouraged and strengthened?
  • 5. Is there sin in my life for which confession
    and repentance is needed?
  • 6. How can I be changed, so I can learn and grow?

55
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • 7. What is in the way of these precepts affecting
    me? What is in the way of my listening to God?
  • 8. How does this apply to me? What will I do
    about it?

56
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • 9. What can I model and teach?
  • 10. What does God want me to share with someone?

57
Start Asking Questions!
  • You are to study the Bible with quiet confidence
    in God. (Matt. 85-13 14 22-33 John 151-17
    Eph. 320 James 43 Jude 24-25)
  • Interview the Bible ask it questions to get to
    know the story, just as a reporter or researcher
    does. At the same time, whom you are interviewing
    is Gods Most Holy Word in His Holy presence!

58
Start Asking Questions!
  • Why? To be more challenged and to draw out more
    information
  • Is there a lesson to learn?
  • Is there a command to obey? 
  • Is there a sin to avoid?
  • Is there a promise to claim and keep?
  • Make sure you trust and obey what God is telling
    you!

59
You can do it!
60
Start Asking Questions!
  • ALWAYS BE AWARE OF THE CONTEXT!
  • The nitty-gritty Read a whole book at least
    three times in an easy-to-read translation. Then,
    read each chapter you are studying in a good
    translation at least three times. Then, read the
    verses, verse-by-verse in order, and write down
    what you see and learn. Then you will be amazed
    at how much more you will pick up!

61
Start Asking Questions!
  • How do I exhibit a life of fruit, character,
    love, faith, and maturity in my daily life now?
  • How can I develop the willingness to be a more
    disciplined, character, fruit and faith driven
    person who will realize I am called, empowered,
    and filled by Christ?
  • What blocks His work in me from working and being
    exhibited in me?

62
Start Asking Questions!
  • How can I accept and commence His work, and
    discipline myself to carry it out?
  • What can I do to make His work in me function
    better, stronger, and faster, even in times of
    uncertainty and stress?
  •  So, what is our LORD telling you?

63
Start Asking Questions!
  • God calls us to encourage others, just as He
    encourages us.
  • With His encouragement, we can tell others about
    Him just by our attitude. This builds unity and
    strength that cannot exist for selfish and alone
    Christians.

64
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • To live a life that is not touched by Christ is
    to live a life that does not touch others
    positively, which is a very sad life indeed (Col.
    47-8 1 Thess. 511-14 Heb. 1025).

65
Doing Inductive Bible Study!
  • To grow in Christ, we must desire to be with Him
    and to learn from Him. (Phil. 310 I John 1
    3-4)
  • Remember this important fact Your Savior has a
    personal word for you! (Psalm 11925- 28, 50, 72,
    89, 90, 105, 130 Prov. 620-23 Ps. 407-8 Jer.
    1516, 23-29 Matt. 44 plus many more).

66
CHARTING YOUR PATH
67
A BOOK CHART WILL HELP YOU GREATLY
  • This is where you write down what you learn from
    the previous steps.
  • It will allow you to see a whole book at a
    glance.
  • It will allow you to reach and remember what you
    learn much, much faster and better.
  • It will reveal the theme of a chapter paragraph
    just at a glance.

68
CHARTING YOUR PATH
  • This is the step where you keep track of what you
    learn.
  • Just like Pastors who get better at preaching and
    teaching not just by practice and study, but also
    by going over what they taught in the past.
    Playing their tapes and re-reading and reviewing
    their studies. You can do this too!

69
CHARTING YOUR PATH
  • You can see where you have been to go further
    ahead.
  • It also acts as an archive of learning, a
    database of what we have learned that we can draw
    from.

70
CHARTING YOUR PATH
THIS CHART IS IN FOUR (4) SECTIONS
1ST Chapter and Paragraph titles. This is
where you can summarize chapters and whole books
in your own words or paraphrase a verse(s). You
can create an outline of the passage by making
your own titles for paragraphs and insights.
STEPS I and II come into play here!
71
CHARTING YOUR PATH
Develop your own chapter and paragraph
titles. Be creative. Try harder. Be sure it
describes the passage and relates to it! Do not
be too general. Keep them short so they are easy
to remember.
72
CHARTING YOUR PATH
Use your individual unique way of expressing
yourself.
2nd OBSERVATION What does it say? This is
where you use STEP III, and write your
observations. Bible Statements. Give the
looks Observe grammar literary style
73
CHARTING YOUR PATH
3rd OBSERVATION What does it mean? This is
where you use STEPS IIIB IV. Ask what are the
implications. Ask your questions here! Who,
What, Where, When, How, and Why.
74
CHARTING YOUR PATH
APPLICATION How does it apply to my life?
This is where we use Steps V VI. How does it
apply to my life? How can I implement Gods Word
into my life? What will I do with this
information? When will I do it?
75
CHARTING YOUR PATH
OTHER INFORMATION This is where you can write

What is Into Thy Word ?
  • Into Thy Word Ministries teaches people how to
    study the Bible in a simple, clear, and concise
    way, equipping pastors and missionaries,
    providing seminars, speaking, church consulting,
    discipleship tools and resources for Christian
    growth.

82
In 1978, Under Francis A. Schaeffers guidance
and vision, Into Thy Word was founded! This
ministry was birthed from his thoughts, ideas and
challenge in true spirituality.
  • Whatever happened to discipleship? Evangelical
    leadership has forgotten the basics of its call,
    make disciples. Thus, the Holy Spirit and the
    Bible gave Into Thy Word its call and I its
    start. Their mandate is simple, model and teach
    true spirituality to pastors, churches and
    young people. Teaching them how to study the
    Bible so to place the Centrality and Lordship of
    Christ into their lives and church. I cannot
    think of anything that is more needed or
    important for a church to aggressively support
    and do.
  • Francis A. Schaeffer, Switzerland, 1983
