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.

Course format

Each week, students will read through one lesson with assignment elements to work on and meet together in a virtual classroom via Zoom. Students who enroll should expect to attend the class and complete each lesson on time.
During the live class time, a teacher will teach new content based on that week’s lesson, facilitate group discussions, and lead students through class projects that apply the skills and knowledge taught by the lesson. Students will also be able to sign up for one-on-one coaching times with their coach.
The course requires about three-four hours per week from students. This includes reading the lesson, completing the assignment, and participating in the live class time.

Course requirements

Weekly Requirements: The course requires students to complete three tasks each week:
  1. Read the lesson content (about 1.5 hours)
  2. Complete the assignments (about 1-1.5 hours)
  3. Participate in a live class (about 1 hour)
Assignments: Weekly assignment elements allow students to apply the principles they learn.
Assessment: During the final week of the course, students will prepare for the assessment.
Certificate: Students who successfully complete the course and pass the assessment will earn Biblearc’s Discovery! Certificate (see sample).
