SEE THE BIBLE IN 3-V
An Investigative Bible Study Method
Using Questions to Examine Scripture
from 3 Views
3-V is a series of seven different advanced Bible study courses designed for the Sr. High level.
3-V is a serious learning tool that forces students to think, by challenging them to investigate.
Throughout a variety of texts and topics, 3-V poses a series of three probing questions in order to enhance a student’s comprehension, interpretation, and application of a scripture.
These 3-Views are –
View 1 – What’s the Text? (Comprehension)
What does the scripture specifically say? How do different Bible translation versions word the same passage?
View 2 – What’s the Context? (Interpretation)
What is the story behind the story? What was the cultural and social background of the people who were addressed? Do we find terms in the scripture that were commonplace to people of the day…but unfamiliar to us?
What were the events that took place prior to the passage?
Exploring all of the background information that envelops a Bible verse can improve our understanding.
View 3 – What’s Next? (Application)
How do we apply our new scriptural understanding to our contemporary daily lives? How will we change in response?
3-V does more than just give your students a Bible lesson…it teaches them how to study the Bible…for a lifetime.
This 3V study series explores what it means to be a disciple, by acting upon the teachings of Jesus.
