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.

Courses can be taken in five weeks, ten weeks or twenty weeks, with a time commitment ranging from 1.5 hours / week to 6 hours / week. Choose whichever option works best for you.
Path courses all end with an evaluation to determine your grasp of the Bible study method and material covered. Students who pass the evaluation have their Biblearc account marked with a proficiency badge indicating their accomplishment. Successfully passing an evaluation requires a high degree of understanding and is meant to serve as a motivation to take your study seriously as well as a catalyst to improve the standard of Bible research in the Biblearc community. Each evaluation attempt requires an evaluation credit. Evaluation credits come with all paid path course enrollment types and also can be purchased individually for $5.
