Skillfully Use Your Bible

We live in a time of overwhelming availability when it comes to Bible study resources. Yet most Christians have never been properly instructed on how to utilize these aids. The result is that they either do not use them, or use them without understanding—thinking they know what they do not actually know.

This course seeks to bridge the gap. It will train you to skillfully utilize Bible features and searches, with a focus on those available through Biblearc. From following cross-references to making sense of footnotes, from thoughtfully comparing Bible translations to searching Greek and Hebrew words, this course will equip you for making the best use of the tools available, while also shedding light on what you can and cannot know without further study.

An online, interactive course

Our core courses, called “Path Courses,” are designed to lead you deeper in your study of Scripture through academic rigor and a heart of worship. We have laid out fifteen different courses along the entire spectrum of Bible study training so that there might be something for everyone—both new believers and veteran pastors, stay-at-home moms and missionaries. These courses are conveniently online and include personal coaching, feedback on assignments, big rewards, and more. All of this to help you persevere to the end and truly learn to study the scriptures in greater depth. Our classroom also covers the globe, giving you the opportunity to participate in a truly unique form of fellowship. Finally, path courses are built to equip you to use Biblearc’s extensive Bible study toolbox so you can go on to discover new biblical glories for yourself.



Meet the Course Coaches



This course is composed of ten lessons. Each lesson contains interactive questions throughout and ends with an assignment. A single lesson will take the average student three to four hours to complete. Students are invited to progress at their own pace, but we encourage you to make a plan for steady progress and to stick to that plan. Your coach will inquire as to your intended pace shortly after you begin and help keep you accountable to stay on schedule.


Path courses all end with an assessment to determine your grasp of the skills learned and material covered. Successfully passing an assessment requires a high degree of understanding and is meant to serve as a motivation to take your study seriously as well as a catalyst to improve the standard of Bible study in the Biblearc community.
Students who successfully complete the course and pass the assessment will earn Biblearc’s Discovery Certificate (see sample). They will also earn exciting rewards.
If you do not pass an assessment, you may retry after one week’s time.
