“I learned so much from this course. I don't know what I ever did without Bible arcing. I loved being able to see the main point of the passage, and see that it made sense in the larger context. Each lesson was fun and different. I'm glad they talked about things like the main point verses your favorite point, finding the deeper logical relations, bible arcing different genres, an overview of other techniques, and Bible arcing extended passages. I also loved the prayer and the devotional at the start of each lesson. Thanks so much! I want all of my friends to Bible arc!” —Robert Kelbe

Arcing itself has already proven to be a valuable tool both for my understanding of the text as well as my devotional meditation on it.” —Nathaniel Simmons
“Arcing combines my visual learning style and love of problem solving into my new favorite method of analyzing the scriptures! I'm so thankful for this new skill and the many insights I will learn through it for years to come!” —sarahp440

I am excited to do bible study now because I can confidently know what the author is trying to tell me and therefore what God is telling me. Highly recommend!” —Alexis Paramore

Work load
All path courses are composed of ten lessons, with each lesson followed by an assignment. To serve people with different levels of availability and styles of learning, we provide three pace options upon enrollment. 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.
