Email Tips: Topical Bible Study

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, September 26th, 2009 .

A couple weeks back I gave three easy steps for how
to study your Bible:

1. Read the verses
2. Compare verses, and
3. Determine the application.

This method of studying can be called exegetical.
This is because you are trying to explain what
you just read from scripture.

Another way of Bible study is called topical Bible
study. The only difference is the first step.

1.) Choose a topic, or ask a question.
2.) Compare verses with a concordance search
using words related to the topic.
3.) Determine the application.

Using topical studies are good for showing God’s
changing dispensational instructions. Try studying
God’s dietary instructions or how God grants

At our fellowship we have separate meetings for
exegetical and topical studies.

For His glory,

Justin Curtis Johnson
