Teach the text

A principle that is continually taught at the Calvary Chapel School of Ministry is the importance of teaching the text. What is the text we are teaching: God’s Word. To teach the text is important to stay true to God’s Word. A way of teaching the text is through Inductive Bible Study. Inductive Bible Study (IBS) is a process that has the student of the Bible read a passage, observe the text in the passage, interpret the passage in its context and finally make application. Studying the Bible in this way allows us to present the Word in its context but also to glean truths that are applicable for today.
