What Is The Inductive Bible Study Method?

What is the Inductive Bible Study method (IBS)? Simply, it is an approach to studying the Bible using inductive reasoning to gather information about a specific situation and to then draw conclusions using three basic steps. The steps are:

Observation - what does the passage say?

Interpretation – what does the passage mean?

Application – what does the passage mean for my life?


Other Bible study methods are available, but where IBS shines is in the second step of interpretation. Other methods exclude this step, which can lead us first to the wrong conclusions about what a passage means and then to an application that can miss the mark.

I am excited about the Bible Journal. This takes a tried and true method of studying the Bible and presents it in an easy-to-use style which can be applied by those who have been studying the Bible for years as well as a beginner.

This is such an effective tool that I am using it in our discipleship class at the church that I pastor.
