This program builds upon the Bible Survey year and is available to both men and women. Church workers and volunteers will be trained and at the same time prepared for the EBTC’s Preachers’ Institute and/or Biblical Counseling program. Students can take what they learn in this program with its curriculum and directly and profitable use it in their churches.
Do you understand what you are reading? – Acts 8,30
Bible reading is good, but in order to live it out and to teach requires more. We must understand it because “The meaning of the Scripture is the Scripture.”
Philip asked a critical question: “Do you understand what you are reading?” In the Bible Survey year, the fundamentals for understanding the Bible are laid, in that students learn to observe and examine the text. The “Profitable Bible Study” program teaches students to understand the statements, purposes, and application of the text in order to live and to teach the text – in personal devotions, in the family, in Sunday School, with children’s or youth ministries, or in various small groups.
