About This Course
Camp Logos Inductive places a heavy emphasis on inductive Bible study or exegesis of a passage.
Rather than going through the software just feature by feature, we discuss the features in the order we probably would use them for inductive Bible study.
In brief, inductive Bible study seeks to understand a biblical author’s original intended meaning of a passage by applying historical, grammatical, and literary principles of interpretation. We seek to expose the meaning of the text rather than impose a meaning on it.
Using the analogy of a jig saw puzzle, with the words of the text being individual pieces and the meaning of the text being the big picture, we analyze and arrange individual pieces to discover what the big picture looks like!
Traditionally we say there are 3 broad phases to inductive Bible study:
For originality’s sake I suggest:
- Read the Text
- Knead the Text
- Heed the Text
Regardless of the phraseology you prefer Camp Logos Inductive will examine and arrange numerous Logos features to help us accomplish the first 2 phases:
- Observation: Read the Text
- Interpretation: Knead the Text
By the end of the third day, your Logos Bible Software will be arranged for effective exegesis and lesson prep.
