Reading Toward a Better Understanding
Click to learn more
The Biblearc Paraphrase course will help students improve their personal study of Scripture by developing skills in careful reading, discerning the main point, creating an outline, and writing a summary and paraphrase. The course will acquaint students with a variety of tools and methods involved in each discipline and will provide guided practice aimed at honing these skills. As paraphrasing is itself a tool for (and a test of) understanding, the ultimate aim is that students grow in the sound handling of Scripture. This means study rooted in prayerful meditation, leading to an accurate understanding, which then stirs a heartfelt treasuring, which prompts an eager obedience to the Word of God.
