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
“I will be using the principles that I have learnt in this course to teach my students how read the Bible faithfully.” —Martin Ricquebourg
“Challenging! Encouraging! Helped me grapple with the text with new eyes and fresh questions!” —Laurahinchman
“Arcing is not so much a skill to be obtained as it is a gift of discovery that will open your heart and then open your eyes to deeper, life-giving meaning in God's Word.” —David Strickland
“Bible arcing is a Spirit-led scholarship tool that will leave you feeling challenged and heartened as you seek to understand God through His word.” —kimber
“I've already graduated from seminary and have already taken a hermeneutics course, but in many regards, this course was far more helpful and practical in teaching me to understand and see the flow of thought coming from the Biblical author than my hermeneutics course was. I was always encouraged and pushed in my faith as I worked through the assignments.” —RogersD75
“The Arcing course was a blessing to me. I pray that our Father would cause what I learned from this course to multiply to the max so that God alone would be glorified through Jesus. Thank you God for this Bible study tool.” —Oscar Marti
“"Bible arcing helps the Christian in the studying of God's Word, therefore it is a great tool."” —RyanChoy
“I believe from the Scripture that every Christian should pursue the knowledge of triune God and all of His councils in order to have strong and godly character as well as hands, ready to work for His Kingdom for His glory. Bible arc is an excellent opportunity for believer to dive into God's word as deep as you want. Great tool for studying the word and bring devotions and reasons to your soul for greater worship of our Savior!” —Andrey Vasilyev
“Arcing has been very useful to me to see the flow of through through passages in the Bible. Often times we can take passages out of context or think the author just jumps back and forth to different topics because we don't realize the flow of thought. Arcing has helped me see the organization of passages and understand how the parts fit together to make the whole.” —Jessica Davis
“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
“This course really was an enjoyable and educational experience. I learned not only how to arc a text of Scripture, but more importantly, I now have another very helpful and accessible tool in my arsenal to be able to see and savor God's Word in my devotional time and in my preparations for teaching.” —Ryan Hawkins
“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
“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
“Even when I'm not arcing, I instinctively trace the argument of each passage I read. This has been a massive help.” —Derek McLarty
“Arcing has refined my sermon preparation and enriched my personal application of God's Word!” —Brent Karding

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.
