One Precept at a Time: How I Study the Bible Using the Inductive Study Method

Before I share with you how I study God’s word using the inductive study method, I want to share with you why I study it this way. As Moses said in Deuteronomy 32:47, it is my life! Jesus, quoting from Deuteronomy 8:3, said we are to live on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Like manna, it is our daily sustenance. There are 66 books in the Bible, and I believe God wants us to know all 66. In Peter’s final letter, he told us it is everything we need for life and godliness (2 Pet 1:3). The word of God is my plumb line by which I measure everything I hear and read. His word is truth!

Receiving God’s Message for Us: How Basic Principles of Communication Can Shape Our Study of Scripture

“Have you never read ...?” With surgical precision, Jesus wields this question against those who fail to perceive the implications of sacred Scripture but should know better. On no less than six occasions (Matt 12:3, 5; 19:4; 21:16, 42; 22:31), his incredulity resounds toward those who have forgotten the prophetic text, misconstrued its meaning, or rejected its implications on the matter at hand. Jesus assumes a number of things we ought not miss.

How to Choose a Bible Translation That’s Right for You: From KJV to ESV to NIV—What’s the Difference?

God’s Presence in the Waiting

Years ago, my husband was stuck in a terrible job. The commute was long, the hours were high, the pay was low, and he was treated poorly by both customers and coworkers. It was difficult to watch him come home late each night, defeated and unable to find another job that would meet the needs of our growing family. Further, we felt torn between the desire for more involvement in ministry and our depleted energy, time, and resources.
