The course involves disciplined self-study of the Bible. Students are trained in observation of what the text actually says. They are taught the principles of interpretation, considering historical and linguistic background information, to discern what the text meant to the original readers, and from this to draw application, what the text means to us today, both individually and corporately.
Using these three steps, the Bible can be read up to five times, outlined and charted. These charts, which are paragraph by paragraph breakdowns of each book, become valuable aids in future study, teaching and preaching.
