Course 3: Tools to Understand and Apply the Bible
How can I better understand the Bible and how it applies to our world?
This course offers a toolset for understanding and applying the Bible. We examine various exegetical and hermeneutical skills, e.g. framework and text; literary genre; historical and cultural context; the line of truth. On the application side, tools for engagement include good questions, "what/why/how", "root&fruit", "function/danger/opportunity" and the like.

Part 2 - Applying the Bible: How the Bible speaks into our world and how it applies to all of life. We explore how God's Word is relevant to everything in our world, and how we can be better equipped to connect God's Word to the world in which we live.
