In this assignment, you will prepare notes for an inductive Bible study. Once you have chosen one of the three passages listed below, you will create notes for each verse (one page per verse). Instructions are as follows:
Part I: Choose one of the following passages for study:
Eph. 2: 1-7
Phil. 2: 1-8
Isa. 40: 25-31
Part II: Recording your research/study
Using a Word document, use the “Landscape” Orientation in order to rotate your paper lengthwise. Then adjust your page layout to allow six columns on the page. Each of the columns will be used as you go through the six steps outlined below.
Part III: Implement the process according to the following directions:
Column One: Foundation Step—Read the Text
· Observe the points below for the whole paragraph/passage you are studying and record your notes in Column One. You will not need to complete this step for each verse—once is enough for the entire passage. In a regular Bible study, you would want to complete Column One whenever the context or situation changes.
· Who wrote the book?
· To whom is the book written?
· Why was the book written? What was the situation?
· When was the book written?
· What is the purpose statement for the book?
Column Two: Framing Step
· Record your answer to the following questions regarding the structure of your passage in Column Two:
· What questions does the subpart you are studying address and answer?
· How are the subparts developed? (literary form: questions, commands, intercession, exposition, summary, greeting, etc.)
· Where does a complete thought begin and end?
· Observe (but do not record) the following:
· The basic outline of the text, or “Outside walls”
· The basic subdivisions of the text, or “Internal walls”
Column Three: Finish Work Step
· Identify the topical and conceptual keywords and phrases of the
passage (Ferrin 106-107).
· Look up the words in concordances, expository dictionaries, Bible
· You may want to record one verse on each page and simply circle the key words and define them.
Column Four: Further study
· With the key word identified and defined, identify what other Biblical scholars have said about the passage or key words you’ve listed.
· Use the listed materials in Column Three to help you accomplish your goal.
Column Five: Internalization Step:
· Pages 146-159 (Ferrin) present some helpful methods for internalizing Scripture.
Simply list the meaningful ways you can allow the verse and its meaning to come alive.
Column Six: Actualization Step:
· In this additional helpful step, pinpoint some changes you will now make to your life as a result of your new understanding of the passage.
