Seminar on Arcing in Minneapolis

If you're in close proximity to Minneapolis you might want to check this out.  (From the Bethlehem Institute website, church-based seminary of Bethlehem Baptist Church, where John Piper preaches.)  I hope they produce video of it for download!

Introduction to Arcing


This seminar will expose participants to a method of Bible study called "arcing." 

October 3-4, 2008 -- Friday evening & all day Saturday
7:00-9:00 PM/Friday and 9:00 AM-4:00 PM/Saturday (1 hour lunch break at Noon)
Seminar Leaders: Tom Steller (Bethlehem's Pastor for Leadership Development and TBI Dean) and Jason Abell (Track 1 Director)

Many people wonder, "How does Pastor John see what he sees in the text of Scripture?" Years ago he learned a method of Bible study called "arcing." Though there is nothing magical about this method, it teaches the motivated student to read Scripture in context, proposition by proposition. It helps the student to discern the biblical author's main point and how every other proposition serves that main point. Through this rigorous attempt to follow the author's thought and discover his intended meaning, the student is confronted by the Word of God with all its truth, beauty, comfort, and challenge.

There's no charge for this seminar.
