Chapter 9 – Studying The Bible By The Bible


Upon completion of this chapter you will be able to:

  • Write the Key Verse from memory.
  • Identify symbols of the Word of God used in the Bible.
  • Study God’s Word by using the Bible.
  • Identify the source of the Word.
  • Distinguish between the milk and meat of the Word.


One of the best ways to begin Bible study is to learn what the Bible says about itself. That is the subject of this chapter. In this lesson you will learn about the symbols of God’s Word and specific facts about God’s Word revealed in the Bible itself.

In most Institute courses when we refer to Scriptures we write them out within the context of the lesson. This is done to save you time. But we have not written out the verses in this lesson for a special reason. One of the purposes of this lesson is to familiarize you with using your Bible, so we have listed only the references. As you study the lesson, look up each reference in your Bible.

If you are not familiar with the location of the books, look in the front of your Bible. Most Bibles have a “Table Of Contents” which lists the page number where the book begins. When you find the page number listed for a book, you will be at chapter one of that book. Then look up the correct chapter and verse number:

Psalm      119:       89
                  
Book Name Chapter Number Verse Number

Read over the chapter study material and complete the self-test at the end. After this chapter is completed, mark complete and go to the next lesson.
