Knowledge Categories

These are the kinds of things that we all studied in school. Keep in mind that the world uses these concepts to DISPROVE the Bible.
Our goal is to show the world that these categories prove that the Bible is accurate.
he Bible.

Archaeology As you are reading, ask yourself, “Are there any inscriptions, carvings, tablets or other evidence which corroborate the facts in this book?”
Geography List the cities, regions or geographic features of each book. Take note of other Bible incidents which happened there. Look up the meaning of each name.
History Where does this book belong on the timeline of Bible history? The books of the Bible are not in chronological order so the Lord has given us a project of discerning where related passages belong!
Law An interesting Bible study project is to discover how the laws of men have been based on God's law.
Medicine The Old Testament Law is filled with wisdom on how to avoid disease.
Music The Bible is full of music! There are plenty of passages which were meant to be sung!
Science Be alert to passages which supposedly “prove” that the Bible is scientifically inadequate. The Bible can hold its own and has never been proven to contain any scientifically invalid passages.

Wisdom Categories

Wisdom consists of seeing things the way God sees them. Serious Bible study is spending time
thinking about the
kind of things Jesus likes to think about.

Apologetics This is the science of refuting those who claim that the Bible is full of errors.

Over thousands of years (and who knows how may scribes and copyists) some scribal errors have been found in various manuscripts.

However, there are no scribal errors which affect the doctrines of the Bible. When the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1948, the 2000 year old scroll of Isaiah validated the copies of Isaiah which were already available.

Blessings The Bible makes a point of showing the effects of a father’s blessing (or lack thereof) on his children’s lives.

Make a note of how blessings were given in Bible families.

Pray a blessing over each member of your family as you close your family Bible time.

! Commands A command is not an option. This goes against the grain for most of us.

If the Christian life is presented as "laying down your life" it becomes a different story.

We don't have an option if our life is no longer ours.

Doctrine This guide makes no apology for distinguishing between orthodox doctrine and the commandments of men.

We base sound doctrine on the Words of Christ. When sound doctrine is taught people give their lives to Christ.

When the commandments of men are taught in place of doctrine, Christians and non-Christians alike are confused.

Jesus Jesus is referred to as the Word (John 1:1) and He can be found throughout the Scriptures.

And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
Luke 24:27

Prayer There is no better way to learn how to pray than to study the prayers of the Bible! Make a note of any prayers you find.

You might want to classify these prayers so that you can refer to them later.

Promises  To God, a promise is a promise, is a promise.
Prophecies People are fascinated by the fulfillment of prophecy and they will be especially interested when you show them prophecies which Jesus fulfilled.
Rhemas God chose the Greek language to convey the New Testament because of its precise use of words. There is a precise difference between the Greek words logos and rhema as you will discover by comparing their use in Scripture.
