There are a number of ways to study the Bible. This study supplement sets out a plan for what is called the Inductive Bible Study Method. It is simple but highly effective.

The word ‘inductive’ describes a logical process that moves us from learning and understanding facts to drawing conclusions about them. Sometimes the term ‘inductive reasoning’ is used which, simply stated, is drawing conclusions from the facts. It is discovery based on careful consideration, and the goal here is to understand better particular passages of Scripture.

What you will need for this inductive study is your Bible, a notebook and a few basic reference books, such as a Bible handbook and concordance. You may not be able to complete this study plan at one sitting. It’s important to take it at your own pace.

The Bible underlines several benefits from taking time to study it. These can become a powerful motivation for us to follow through with inductive Bible study.
