Students of the School of Biblical Studies will learn:

How to study inductively
Using an inductive approach students will engage with every page of the Bible by observing what it says, interpreting its intended meaning and applying it to their lives.

How to find the historical context
The student will learn to explore the text through the eyes of the original reader using good resources to understand the cultural and historical background of each book.

The goal of any Bible study is to be able to apply its truth in our lives! Students of the School of Biblical Studies are constantly evaluating their own lives and prayerfully finding opportunities to apply the principles of the Bible to their own situations.
