Description of the Workshop
We have developed a simple Bible-exploration training that transforms our relationship with Scripture. We do this using two timeless methods used throughout church history: 1) slow and simple inspection of key biblical texts and 2) looking across Scripture for the patterns we discovered in those key texts.
We have found that we can teach people this basic skill in an hour, if that’s all time allowed. It is an energetic training with lots of participation. Bible study programs generally excel in one of the two: slow study or seeing the big pattern. This training we have developed uniquely allows people, whether they are lay persons or pastors, to grasp the deep structures of biblical thinking across Scripture.
