The phrase “Bible study” can mean different things to different people. Some use the term to describe a discussion group, which may discuss the Bible or some other uplifting book. Bible studies include workbooks that help connect you to the ideas of Bible texts. Other people consider Bible study to refer to academic and theological studies about the Bible.
At Knowable Word, I use the term Bible study to describe the average person with open Bible in hand. You’ve got God’s Word, a wish to know him, and some time on your hands. Now what? What do you do with this ancient text to help you know God better? That’s Bible study.
Would you like to learn it with me? Would you like to unleash the power of God for salvation on our generation? Would you like to train others to be effective handlers of the Word?
My mission is to help you do exactly that.
The purpose of this post is to give you a road map for the process. Each link below will take you to a post that explains that step of the OIA Bible study method (Observation, Interpretation, Application). To learn more about leading OIA small groups, see the series on how to lead a Bible study.
