About the “putting it together” series
On the foundation of keen observation skills and biblical interpretation principles, this series puts the focus on the central study objective of our efforts—discerning what the text means. Included here are the preferred Bible study methods of some of the best Bible teachers of our day—methods that help us see how texts grammatically and logically connect, taught in a way so that any serious Christian can learn.
From former students
“Even when I'm not arcing, I instinctively trace the argument of each passage I read. This has been a massive help.” —Derek McLarty
“This course is excellent! I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking for going deeper into studying the Bible. The course has provided me with a tool that I can use to identify the structure in Bible passages and the author's main point. This course will deepen your desire and passion to go deeper and further in studying the Bible.” —Nathan Clow
“I learned so much from this course. I don't know what I ever did without Bible arcing. I loved being able to see the main point of the passage, and see that it made sense in the larger context. Each lesson was fun and different. I'm glad they talked about things like the main point verses your favorite point, finding the deeper logical relations, bible arcing different genres, an overview of other techniques, and Bible arcing extended passages. I also loved the prayer and the devotional at the start of each lesson. Thanks so much! I want all of my friends to Bible arc!” —Robert Kelbe
“I have been preaching and teaching for more than twenty-five year. I wish I would have been exposed to this method of study twenty years ago, but praise the Lord it is never to late. Get started sooner than later the benefits will be eternal for this generation and the next too.” —Bruce Williams
“Arcing combines my visual learning style and love of problem solving into my new favorite method of analyzing the scriptures! I'm so thankful for this new skill and the many insights I will learn through it for years to come!” —sarahp440
“If you are struggling in reading the bible plainly without understanding, then I recommend Bible arc as a helpful tool for you to invest your time and money. It will make you grow as a Christian and it will amaze you through revelation of each verses. Indeed this tool is for those people who seek to know the scripture deeper. Very amazing tool!” —Lynly
“I cannot be more grateful for finding Biblearc. It has changed the way I study God's Word.” —Chris Baies
“I was introduced to Bible-arcing years ago when watching an interview by John Piper. Now having learned how to do it on my own and with other believers in my church, I feel I get to see, even if to a lesser degree [than John Piper], some of the majesties and treasures that God intended to show us from the beginning. It is a blessed thing to behold our God, and we should be trying to do this in any way and in every way possible - why wouldn't you want to add Bible-arcing as a means to further achieve this end? I can think of no reason.” —Stephen.Choy
“Arcing has given me a deeper thirst for the Scriptures and helped me see how truly inexhaustible God's Word is.” —GarrettFelix
“This arcing course helped me to see key themes throughout paragraphs and chapters that allowed me to see connections between content of each book in ways that I have never seen before.” —sthompson02
“I was challenged but learned much during the course.” —kennedys7
“There are so many things I love about this course! The lessons were well paced and accommodating for students without a deep understanding of grammar. Arcing itself has already proven to be a valuable tool both for my understanding of the text as well as my devotional meditation on it.” —Nathaniel Simmons
“This course helped me to not just become familiar with arcing, but helped me to feel confident that I can arc on my own. It was paced well and the thought behind the progression of the lessons was brilliant. The end result: I can dive deep into God's Word and stand amazed at what a great God he is.” —gregdeweese
“Arcing is a helpful tool to have in one's hermenuetical belt.” —Justindbraun
“This course changed how I read the Bible. As a formerly fast reader, now I find myself wanted to slow down and arc various complex passages in order to see the logical relationships between each piece.” —JamKron

Work load
All path courses are composed of ten lessons, with each lesson followed by an assignment. To serve people with different levels of availability and styles of learning, we provide three pace options upon enrollment. Courses can be taken in five weeks, ten weeks or twenty weeks, with a time commitment ranging from 1.5 hours / week to 6 hours / week. Choose whichever option works best for you.
Path courses all end with an evaluation to determine your grasp of the Bible study method and material covered. Students who pass the evaluation have their Biblearc account marked with a proficiency badge indicating their accomplishment. Successfully passing an evaluation requires a high degree of understanding and is meant to serve as a motivation to take your study seriously as well as a catalyst to improve the standard of Bible research in the Biblearc community. Each evaluation attempt requires an evaluation credit. Evaluation credits come with all paid path course enrollment types and also can be purchased individually for $5.
