Acerca de este curso: Este curso expone los conceptos fundamentales y las estructuras necesarias para comenzar a utilizar el método de estudio bíblico llamado Arcing (Arqueo Bíblico). El Arcing ha sido puesto a prueba y ha demostrado ser una excelente herramienta para cavar profundamente en la Palabra de Dios. Únete a nosotros en un estudio que te desafiará a pensar mucho más y a sumergirte bajo la superficie a medida que trabajamos juntos en el primer capítulo de Santiago.

Hemos establecido quince cursos a lo largo del espectro del entrenamiento en el estudio bíblico para que haya algo para todos, tanto nuevos creyentes como pastores veteranos, madres que se quedan en casa y misioneros. Convenientemente, estos cursos están en línea con componentes creativos e interactivos diseñados para ayudarte a perseverar hasta el final dentro de una comunidad mundial de estudiantes. También puedes aprovechar la interacción personal con los instructores de los cursos de varias maneras. Finalmente, los cursos del sendero han sido diseñados para equiparte en el uso de la extensa caja de herramientas de estudio de Biblearc mientras que aprendes a descubrir las glorias de la Biblia por ti mismo.

Las becas disponibles para este curso son el resultado del generoso aporte de algunos donantes que desean promover el estudio serio de la Palabra de Dios por medio de Biblearc en América Latina.

From former students

“This course has allowed me to see the flow of Scripture like I never have before.”

“The Phrasing class is phenomenal!! Laying out the author’s main arguments and then tracing the subordinating thoughts that follow is absolutely invaluable for proper exegesis. I highly recommend Phrasing as a first step for those interested in deeper Bible study. I can’t stress enough the importance of being able to visually see how the text is all flowing together. 5 stars and two thumbs up, easily.

From former students

“No Bible study method has helped me see and enjoy more in God’s Word than arcing and bracketing. The bracketing class covered the basics of the method while also encouraging the student to excel still more. I’m grateful to God for Biblearc.com.”

“This class was terrific! I often think I see the connections among verses of scripture, but sometimes have a hard time drawing out the actual relationship. This class really helped me “connect the dots.” Arcing and bracketing have quickly become one of the most used arrows in my quiver of bible study tools.”

“This course is, in my opinion, a necessary investment for any serious preacher and Bible study leader who does not have prior experience in bracketing. Bracketing offers so much to the process of exegesis and sermon preparation – and for the price of this course and what you get in return, it will be one of the most worthwhile uses of your money.”

“Learning the bracketing method has not only helped me to dig deeper for more insight into God’s word, but it has really helped to ground both my mind and heart in it!”
