"For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4: 12.
We believe that every original word in the Bible is God inspired. It is the foundation for spiritual growth and maturity. As such, a key discipline for every Christ follower should be deep Bible engagement which includes serious Bible study. Engaging with the Bible should not be limited to a single Bible study method, but is best experienced as a multi-dimensional approach.
Bible study methods include the use of a Study Bible with additional resources to dive deep on a narrow set of verses. This method of Bible Study encourages people to understand the depth of meaning in a few verses. Bible study also means ensuring both a telescopic (reading big) and microscopic (focusing on smaller portions) approach to the Bible.
Biblica offers a very unique reading plan for studying the Bible called Community Bible Experiences. This innovative method of Bible engagement helps readers understand the big picture, the overarching story of the Bible. The Books of the Bible, which is formatted more like the original texts-excluding chapters and verses-is the key Bible for this approach. It is designed to facilitate "reading big" as a way to engage with God's Word.
Other simple Bible reading plans may also assist readers in their engagement and Bible Study. A 365 day reading plan is provided by Biblica online and in printed form.
Daily Manna is a Bible study resource that offers a short daily reading in both print and audio formats and can be viewed online or delivered via email or to a mobile phone.
We encourage you to grow deeper with God through more Bible engagement and Bible study. Feel free to use our reading plans and all of the materials we've developed. But don't stop there.
Concordances, study Bibles, devotional Bibles, and Bible related software can also aid in your Bible study and a deep engagement with God's Word.
