How to Study the Bible Boot Camp
This course provides you four basic skills to improve your approach to bible study. C Michael Patton follows the authorial intent hermeneutic. This basically means that we want to understand the text as the original audience understood the text. There is a three step process to understanding the Scripture: 1. What did the text mean in ancient times, 2. what does the text mean for all time, 3. how does the text apply to us.
