Phrasing

Tracing the Arguments of Scripture

The Biblearc Phrasing course will teach students how to wrap their minds around a passage of Scripture by going through the Five Passes of Phrasing.  This includes dividing up the text of Scripture into its smallest grammatical units, indenting those units and drawing arrows between them to show relationships, labelling those relationships, and applying the main points of the passage to their lives.

This close and detailed grammatical study will lead to an accurate understanding of the author’s original intent in a passage, which we pray will culminate in joyful treasuring of and heartfelt obedience to Jesus Christ.

Work load

This course is composed of ten lessons, with each lesson ending in an assignment. A single lesson will take the average student three hours to complete. Students are invited to progress at their own pace. Your coach will inquire as to your intended pace shortly after you begin and help keep you accountable to stay on schedule.

Assessment

Path courses all end with an assessment to determine your grasp of the skills learned and material covered. Successfully passing an assessment requires a high degree of understanding and is meant to serve as a motivation to take your study seriously as well as a catalyst to improve the standard of Bible study in the Biblearc community.
Students who pass the assessment will have their Biblearc account marked with a proficiency badge indicating their accomplishment. They will also earn exciting rewards.
If you do not pass an assessment, you may retry after one week’s time.
