I want to help you learn to study the Bible. I want to help you teach others to study the Bible.
What I Write
I write about anything having to do with the Bible. Some posts are Bible studies, giving you examples to follow. Other posts discuss methods for Bible study. Yet other posts present ideas for leading Bible study discussions. Along the way, I’ll refer you to other websites that are doing a good job of it, too.
But the proof, as they say, is in the puddin’. So please let me know if you think I’m gettin’ ‘er dun or not. I can be taught. You won’t need to set anything on fire to get my attention (2 Sam 14:29-30, Judg 15:4-6).
I generally post twice per week, with something to check out on Wednesday and a “Method” or “Leading” post on Friday. This blog is more diverse than a horde of freshly freed slaves (Ex 12:38), but it’s far more focused than 450 priests of Baal (1 Kgs 18:28-29).
My name is Peter Krol, and I’ve taught the Bible since 1996. I serve on the Senior Leadership Team with DiscipleMakers campus ministry and as an elder at Grace Fellowship Church of State College, PA. I’ve trained dozens of people to study the Bible. Many of them now train others who have begun training others.
As a child, I read the Bible often so I could win at Bible trivia. Since then, my motivations have matured, but my delight remains insatiable. My New Year’s Resolution for the last 4 years was to read no other book until I had read the entire Bible (see my reading plan at The Gospel Coalition). Each year I finished the Bible a little sooner and gained a better understanding of the scope of God’s love for us in Christ. I plan to continue this tradition, not because it makes God any happier with me, but because it makes me happier with him.
My name is Ryan Higginbottom, and I teach mathematics to college students at Washington & Jefferson College. I promise not to bring up Calculus too often on Knowable Word. I’m a member of Washington Presbyterian Church, where I regularly teach adult Sunday school and have led an adult small group for the past 5 years. I enjoy studying the Bible, teaching the Bible, writing about the Bible, and helping others learn to study the Bible themselves.

If you try to get away without subscribing, though, I’ll hunt you down like the guilty refugee you are. All the way to the hill country of Gilead, if I have to (Gen 31:22-23).

Thanks so much for visiting the site. I’ve asked God to grant success at spreading his Word. And though I really mean it, I won’t promise to sacrifice anything when I get home (Judges 11:30-31, 34-35). So don’t even ask.
