Inductive Bible Study: Studying The Bible For Yourself

One of the most powerful ways of studying the Word of God systematically is Inductive Bible Study. It consists of three stages -

Stage 1:  OBSERVATION asks: What Does The Text Say?

This involves asking 6 questions of the text: 5 Ws and 1 H - Who? What? Where? When? Why? How

Stage 2:  INTERPRETATION: What Does The Text Mean?

Stage 3:
  APPLICATION: What Does It Say To Me?

 2 TIMOTHY 2:15 Do your best to win God's approval as a faithful servant correctly dissecting the Word of truth.
