Bible Study Resources

The Bible is God’s breathed-out Word.

In the Bible, God speaks personally and authoritatively about the salvation he’s accomplished through his Son, the Lord Jesus. And he speaks to us in his Word to change us, to equip us for every good work.

The following videos begin to explain a few basic tools for biblical exposition. They aim to encourage us to keep making progress in hearing God’s Word, doing God’s Word, and retelling God’s Word—all for the glory of Christ Jesus.
