WHAT COULD BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN KNOWING GOD AND HIS WILL AND LIVING IN RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM?

PRECEPT MINISTRIES SOUTH AFRICA IS DEDICATED TO EQUIPPING PEOPLE EVERYWHERE WITH THE TOOLS TO DISCOVER TRUTH FOR THEMSELVES BY STUDYING GOD'S WORD INDUCTIVELY. BELIEVERS ALL OVER THE WORLD TELL US THESE TOOLS HAVE MADE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN THEIR WALK WITH GOD.

WHAT IS INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY?
“Inductive” means we use the Bible as the primary source of study to learn about God and what the Bible teaches. Our studies and training workshops are designed to equip you with inductive study tools so you can discover truth for yourself.

THE METHOD
Inductive Bible Study is an investigative approach to the Bible using three basic components:

  • Observation
  • Interpretation
  • Application

In this approach, individual time spent observing Scripture to know what the Bible says and using sound principles of interpretation to understand what it means can result in a God-honouring and fulfilling life of application of the scriptures.

Although individual study is the first step, we encourage group discussion of personal observations and insights so confirmation, clarification, and correction are made in the fellowship of other students. Discussion of the Bible’s truths helps seal them in our minds and sharing application encourages us to greater obedience and holiness.

Because there are skills in observing and interpreting the Bible that are unfamiliar to many students and because there are different philosophies of what is meant by "leading a discussion," Precept Ministries South Africa provides training workshops to prepare Bible Study Leaders and students to study inductively and to prepare Bible Study Leaders to help their students successfully complete their assignments and to lead effective discussions.
