Now, Let's Do Some In depth Bible Study!
Here's How To Begin Digging Deeper In the Bible
With Bible Study

    For this simple bible study method we're going to:

    1. Find the root word and meanings for several words in your scripture
    2. Use the Bible Dictionary to add to your study

    #1 Find the Original Word and Meaning Using the Interlinear Bible

    The original language of the bible - which was for the most part Hebrew ( Old Testament) , Greek ( New Testament), and in some areas Aramaic - was taken and translated into English, to make it readable to the masses!

    The problem with bible translations is that many times, the context or message captured in the original tongue can become diluted, misinterpreted, or lost all together through translation. ( Read More About Translations here).

    That's why the Interlinear Bible is perfect for digging deeper in bible study.

    The beauty of the interlinear bible is that we can find the full meaning and deepen our understanding of words found in bible passages by going back to the original word.

    To Dig Deeper In the Word

    That's all there is to it! You can use the sample below as an idea of how your bible study sheet should be completed. Now, your turn!

    #2 Use the Bible Study Bible Dictionary
    to Dig Deeper In The Word

      The Bible Dictionaries are found under “Study” in the navigation bar at the top of Bible Study They are no ordinary dictionaries! Bible Dictionaries like Easton, Smith’s and Baker’s are quite famous for providing quality, in depth explanation on places, objects, plans, cultural and ceremonial customs - backed and stacked with scriptural references.

      Like an ordinary dictionary, you can search for your own word and the dictionary will pull up the information.

      I will show you how to use Bible Study Dictionary in a simple demonstration below.

      - Now Your Turn -

      1) Download the Free Printable {if you have not as yet}

      2) Select the word { place, thing, animal, name, object etc} that you would like to learn more about

      3) Using The Bible Dictionary in Bible Study, search for the word { as seen in the video}

      4) Record your findings on the Bible Study Sheet

      P.s. If you cannot find the word you are looking for in Bible Study or the search resulted in just a few sentences, do not give up. Instead go to Google and put in the search "Bible Dictionary" + " your word" [ if the word is anoint, then it will look like this "Bible Dictionary" +"anoint"]. Google will pull up every Bible Dictionary
