The Context of Scripture
Have you ever read a verse (or verses) in the Bible and wondered, "What does this mean?" Well, you're not alone. Many times when you read a passage in the Bible from the context of the people who were living at the time, it opens up a whole new understanding of what the author was trying to say. For example, here is an excerpt from an assignment one of our students completed while they studied Ephesians:
How I Got Equipped by the CBCC
When I began my Chronological Biblical Core Course back in 2021, I had no idea the value it would have for me. I originally chose to do the CBCC because I wanted to be closer to God and wanted to be able to study the Bible on my own. Those weren’t selfish desires, but they were self-focused.
Little did I know how passionate I would become in helping others learn to study the Bible. During my CBCC I realized that I had been content to allow my pastor or someone else to read the Bible for me; however I didn’t spend much time reading it myself. Many members of the Church struggle with this. Some just don’t know where to begin or find the Bible very intimidating.
You’ve heard about Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and Discipleship Training Schools (DTS). But did you know that there are more courses designed to take you deeper into specific topics after DTS? The nine-month Chronological Bible Core Course (CBCC) was created to enable those from all walks of life to participate in a University of the Nations CBCC part-time while continuing with their day-to-day responsibilities. It is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the Inductive Bible Study approach by learning how to employ various methods for reading, interpreting, and applying the Scriptures!
