  • A Disciple’s Habit Scripture What we study determines what kind of habits are to be formed in our lives  
    • “ All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God my be thoroughly equipped for every good work” II Timothy 3: 16-17
    • “ Scripture can not be broken” – Jesus John 10:35
    • “ How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to Your word” Psalms 119:9
    • Blessed is the man…delights in the word ( law ) of the LORD, and on His words he, meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit…” Psalms 1:1-3
  • Scripture Basics When you read you should:
    • 1. Summarize - the narrative. Making sense of the passage.
    • 2. Understand - What does this mean? Why would God choose this story and these words/tense/phrase/person/story/theme? What is the purpose?
    • 3. Application - How does this change me? In light of this scripture, how shall I live?

  • Beginning Study Methods Most of these elements can be applied at different levels: sentence, paragraph, story/event, chapter, book, whole Bible
    • Summary: Understand and be able to tell the basic story
    • Character/Biographical sketch: Explore the actions, motives, emotions, transformation, impact… of the individuals in the narrative

    • Background: What was the historical, political, religious, cultural, philosophical and religious setting for the text?
    • Structure analysis: A lot of possibilities here. Why is the narrative built in this order? What is the pivot point? Repeated words/phrases/metaphors? What would happen if you changed individuals, location, verbs. I’ve included one example
    • Meaning(s) Why did God include this_____________?
    • Application : How will I apply what God says through His word?

  • The LORD is my shepherd not a some singular Why not God Adoni Elohim Elroi I AM “YWH” Moses and Burning bush Other places it is used Did you know the Jews refused to pronounce this word? Why not another verb? What comes to mind when you hear this word? What does this word signify? What was the point of this encounter? Why not a, the, our, righteous, good, kind? “ How does this word fit with “The LORD”? Out of all of the things that the LORD is, why this word? What if you were reading it for the first time? If He is this, what am I? What are the characteristic of a shepherd? Where else in scriptures is this shepherd/sheep motif used? What are the characteristics of sheep? Why not “is like a” Notice the big hinge coming next! Job description
