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.

“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 has refined my sermon preparation and enriched my personal application of God's Word!” —Brent Karding
“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

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.
