SWORD BIBLE STUDY METHOD
Three simple questions to ask after reading scripture to help anyone study the bible and apply it to their life.
Scripture teaches the bible is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword.
The Sword Bible Study Method uses this imagery as a memory device for three powerful discovery questions to examine after reading a passage of Scripture.
The top of the blade points to God with the question prompt:
What do we learn from the passage about GOD?
We hold the handle which represents humanity and the question:
What do we learn from the passage about PEOPLE?
The blade represents what we do with Scripture with the question prompt:
Is there anything from the passage God wants us to OBEY?
You can expand obey into 4 sub-questions using the acronym SPEC. In the passage are there any…
- Sins to avoid?
- Promises to claim?
- Examples to follow?
- Commands to obey?
This tool can be used for individual study, one-on-one discipleship or within a group bible study.
The Commands of Christ is a bible study guide that utilises the Sword Bible Study Method.
A Discovery Bible Study is a great tool for discovering the bible together with others using the Sword Bible Study Method.
