COURSE DESCRIPTION: Introduction to Bible Study is the first of a series of three courses (Intro to Bible Study, Bible Research, Hermeneutics) designed to help students develop the skills necessary to uncover biblical truths on their own. Many courses offered by PBC emphasize theoretical issues, whereas the Bible Study series requires students to master a set of technical skills needed for studying the Bible with Bible Software. In Intro to Bible Study, students will learn about the inspiration, origin and the translations of Scripture. Furthermore, students will be familiarized with the basic resources and tools useful for conducting studies on Bible words, characters and passages. TO PREVIEW A LECTURE CLICK HERE LOGOS BIBLE SOFTWARE: This course is developed around the study tool Logos Bible Software.   All course instructions, written assignments and tutorials are designed with the Logos program in mind. Specific tutorials are provided to demonstrate how to use Logos to study the Bible. While the principles pulled from the lectures can apply to any pursuit to study the Bible, this online course is developed with owners of Logos Bible Software in mind. Logos puts a large electronic library of resources (dictionaries, lexicons, handbooks, commentaries) at the fingertips of the student in an incredibly searchable format. To complete the coursework in this class you will need either the Logos Starter Library or higher.  In addition, you will want to purchase both the Hebrew and Greek volumes of the Dictionary of Biblical Languages. Once you buy these at https://www.logos.com/products, they will automatically download to your library. COURSE OBJECTIVES: To acquaint the student with the Bible: its background and purpose. To acquaint the student with areas of background information that must be considered when studying the Scriptures. To develop personal skills at reading the Word, gaining insights and recording them for future use. To equip each student with the basic resource tools and methodology required to conduct informative studies in the Bible.
