Session 1 – BE 134 – Tracing The Thoughts of Titus: A guide on accurately interpreting epistles
Only members and attenders of The Bridge will be invited to participate in this first session as we will use it as a pilot for The Bridge Bible Institute’s new program.
Wednesdays, February 3 – March 3, 2021, 7:00-8:30 pm
Classes will be held on The Bridge Bible Fellowship campus (18644 Sherman Way, Reseda 91335/classroom to be advised) and also available via Zoom. Space will be limited!
The purpose of this course is to teach basic Bible study methods, including an introduction to diagramming and an English grammar refresher. These methods will be taught and practiced through the epistle of Titus. Attention will be given to the theological issues and themes taught in that book and application of them in our lives.
Students will learn how to discover the main idea of the authors of Scripture and how they developed, explained or proved those ideas. Additionally, students will learn some basics about Greek verbs without knowing Greek and how to make sense of them in English.
BE 134 – Tracing The Thoughts of Titus introduces students of the Bridge Bible Institute to fundamentals of studying the Bible. These principles are foundational for Biblical and Theological Studies.
