“I had not heard of Precept (Inductive Study) before, but on a friend's recommendation was happy to give it a try. We (a group of 5) started with Colossians. It took a couple of weeks to get used to the format and initially we were not too sure, but as we progressed came to realise and appreciate the depth and breadth of the ground we were covering. We have also grown in our fellowship with one another. Titus will be the third study and we hope we will be able to meet up as a group as we come out of lockdown. The Zoom sessions have worked well and it has been good to have the continued focus, especially this year. Personally, I can highly recommend this form of study.”
Having now completed three Precept Bible schools I am feeling so much more confident with the Precept study method and find that I am automatically using the method when reading scripture, I feel so much sharper.
Life-changing. The more I dig the more confidence I gain in delivering this to others and the better I hear the Lord. I cannot extol the benefits of this way of studying enough. The PBS is amazing and so well run, sending us home with encouragement and conviction to continue gaining new converts.
The Precept Bible School equips students with skills and tools to know God better through learning how to accurately handle the Word of God, so they can discover truth for themselves. Be empowered to make disciples of others, so the kingdom of God grows in number and maturity and invite others to experience the Precept Bible School too. There is a residential and an online element to the Precept Bible School, offering students flexibility and unique resources, training and ongoing support.
I’ve done precept before it’s a great reminder of slowing down. So often you can read a Bible plan and you can skip over the actual part where God would like to speak to you, so this weekend has been about Malachi (Prepared PBS) but it’s also been great to be reminded of slowing down, looking at those key words and interrogating scripture. But more importantly the application of it where does it apply in our lives? If you want to develop your relationship with God, then this method of study would be the way to develop that relationship.
I think at first i thought it was a little bit junior, but i soon got into the idea that ir really helps it helps your mind pick out important points rather than sort of scooting over the surface, but getting your mind focussed and picking out things you’ve never noticed before. I enjoy the fellowship, I enjoy studying with people who are really keen to understand the Lord and his word. So it’s really nice to meet people who are really thirsty and hungry for the Lord, I’ll definitely be back.
