Inductive Bible Study Training Class week 7 of 10

This is the seventh week of the ten week Inductive Bible Study Training Class that I conducted at our church (  These videos were recorded from the first session of these classes starting back in January of 2015.  In this class, we go over cross references / parallel passages and keeping things in context as well as how Scriptures interpret Scriptures.


Topics Covered for Week 7:


  • Training session review
  • Homework review
  • Cross References / Parallel Passages
  • Keeping it in context
  • Scriptures interpreting Scriptures



Homework Assignment for Week 7:

Keep working through Philippians for all of your chapters through observation and interpretation (of what we have covered so far) using whatever method of charting you decide to use.  NOTE: On the charting – don’t think that if you start with one charting tool, you can’t change to a different tool.  Use whatever works for you.  Here are just some options for you to possibly use (not a complete list obviously):

  • Hand-written notes / notebook
  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Google Docs / Google Drive (free online)
  • Microsoft OneNote (free online or purchase license)
  • Evernote (free online)


Resources for Week 7:

  1. Appendix 2: Pastor Xavier Ries’ Inductive Bible Study Method (you can get it from Calvary Chapel of Pasadena’s website):

Please leave a comment or question and I will try to respond a.s.a.p.
