Phrasing LIVE

Tracing the Arguments of Scripture

The Biblearc Phrasing course will teach students how to wrap their minds around a passage of Scripture by going through the Five Passes of Phrasing.  This includes dividing up the text of Scripture into its smallest grammatical units, indenting those units and drawing arrows between them to show relationships, labeling those relationships, and applying the main points of the passage to their lives.

This close and detailed grammatical study will lead to an accurate understanding of the author’s original intent in a passage, which we pray will culminate in joyful treasuring of and heartfelt obedience to Jesus Christ.

About the “putting it together” series

On the foundation of keen observation skills and biblical interpretation principles, this series puts the focus on the central study objective of our efforts—discerning what the text means. Included here are the preferred Bible study methods of some of the best Bible teachers of our day—methods that help us see how texts grammatically and logically connect, taught in a way so that any serious Christian can learn.

Course format

Each week, students will read through one lesson, meet together in a virtual classroom via Zoom, and complete an assignment. Students who enroll should expect to attend the class and complete each lesson and assignment 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 the teacher.
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 assignment (about 1-1.5 hours)
  3. Participate in a live class (about 1 hour)
Assignments: Weekly assignments allow students to apply the principles they learn as they phrase 2 Thessalonians.
Assessment: During the final week of the course, students will prepare for the assessment. During the one-hour assessment, students will answer several short-answer and multiple-choice questions, and carry out the Five Passes of Phrasing in a short passage.
Certificate: Students who successfully complete the course and pass the assessment will earn Biblearc’s Phrasing Certificate.
