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.
From former students
“Bible arcing is a Spirit-led scholarship tool that will leave you feeling challenged and heartened as you seek to understand God through His word.” —kimber
“This course really was an enjoyable and educational experience. I learned not only how to arc a text of Scripture, but more importantly, I now have another very helpful and accessible tool in my arsenal to be able to see and savor God's Word in my devotional time and in my preparations for teaching.” —Ryan Hawkins
“Arcing helps me to view the word of God afresh, which nourishes my soul, helps me minister to others more effectively, and increases my joy in the Lord as I see Him unfold His truth in a very purposeful way.” —James Keen
“I believe from the Scripture that every Christian should pursue the knowledge of triune God and all of His councils in order to have strong and godly character as well as hands, ready to work for His Kingdom for His glory. Bible arc is an excellent opportunity for believer to dive into God's word as deep as you want. Great tool for studying the word and bring devotions and reasons to your soul for greater worship of our Savior!” —Andrey Vasilyev
“This course changed the way I read and understood the Bible--it caused me to slow down, dig deeper and ask questions of the text as I never had before. I now have an irreplaceable study tool that I look forward to using from now on. Thank you!” —GLynch
“Digging for treasure is not easy but the right tools can make your efforts more effective. Arcing is one tool that makes the study of Gods word deeper and effective” —Darlene Yoder
“The arcing class gave me a lot of helpful structure for looking carefully at a passage and determining what the point is. It was so helpful, I signed up for a different class as soon as I finished it!” —Andrea Hartman
“I was challenged but learned much during the course.” —kennedys7
“Arcing has been for me an indispensable tool for studying the word of God. The Arcing Path Course provides a thorough yet approachable introduction to using arcing to understand the logic of a text. Furthermore, the course is designed so that you can proceed at your own pace. I highly recommend this course for anyone who desires to faithfully handle the word of God and behold the flow of thought in any text of Scripture.” —Gabriel Loo
“This course has taught me to look deeply into the Word of God, not passing over key elements that are vitally important to the meaning of passages. Rather than reading through the Bible quickly, I now cherish the ability to slow down, look deeply, think critically, and learn great truths from Scripture.” —Emily Durham
“I cannot be more grateful for finding Biblearc. It has changed the way I study God's Word.” —Chris Baies
“Bible arcing is an invaluable tool for thinking through the logic of a passage. It will cause you to meditate and memorize scripture for the using and for sharing with more clarity for others. I've been recommending it to anyone who is willing to mine the scriptures.” —Needi
“"Bible arcing helps the Christian in the studying of God's Word, therefore it is a great tool."” —RyanChoy
“I have always struggled with sermon and lesson preparation. I constructed various methods to help me grasp the meaning of the text and the supporting ideas. The process was convoluted and laborious and rarely satisfying. Never again will I struggle with and wander in the text. The Arcing course has permanently given my Bible study a logical, contextual, means of approaching each text on my own rather than relying on the exegetical expertise of others in commentaries. The web site Arcing App is excellent and is where I go first even though I have Logos.” —Steve Kreis
“This course is worth working through. Even if you don't finish feeling like an expert of Arcing, you will have a deeper understanding of the book of James, and that is certainly worth while.” —Brita
