STUDY METHOD


The Key Word Method of message/group preparation and outlining is not a new thing, it's just a thing I've secretly focused on for a number of years! It all started with a Bible Study Fellowship Seminar in which the homiletical method of Bible Study was presented. My favorite homiletical teacher Donald Hamilton states that the "Key Word Method proves to be the most useful, once it is mastered." The Key Word Method requires at least two parallel ideas in the text that are related one to the other. The typical Key Word Method of study requires at least twelve steps. But, as usual I have added several steps to our Key Word Study Method. The steps I've added are basically the research of similar and or like words amid the Hebrew and Greek Biblical language. Please find below eight basic steps of Key Word Message/Group preparation. Advance Steps are located in our Signature Journals.
