About IBS Seminar
What this Course is all about
The overall objective of the Inductive Bible Study (IBS) Seminar is to engage regular church-goers, working people, full-time students, YWAM staff, and all those who are unable, due to time limitations, to attend a regular 9 month SBS Bible course. It will enable them to learn how to study the Bible using the Inductive Method, hence empowering them to equip their churches with this powerful tool to be able to lead strong Bible study groups in their communities. By introducing the SBS method in a very simplified manner while keeping its strong inductive approach, we want to train more leaders in Christian ministries to embrace the inductive biblical approach and be able to serve their churches with strong biblical foundations.
At the heart of everything that we do is our commitment to making SBS teaching and resources accessible to the church and communities we serve. We invite you to explore this precious course and join learners from all cultural backgrounds and levels.
At the end of this course you should be able to:
-Learn the general principles of the SBS Inductive Bible Study Method
for the Whole New Testament.
-Understand the different New Testament types of literary genres and how to study each genre inductively.
-You will learn how to observe, interpret, and apply the New Testament biblical passages and how to use external resources to understand in depth the Word of God.
-Acquire the basic tools to prepare teaching from a Bible passage
and develop self-confidence to lead and present a simple Bible study session.
The course was designed to suit working people, enabling them to learn during interactive 2.5-hour weekly sessions with a minimal requirement of personal workload and assignments. Those who desire to follow the course with credits and fulfill the course requirements will earn a total of 3 credit hours with the University of the Nations.
