In November, we took a look at the devotional method of Bible study, a method you can do when you have little time but you still want to apply the Scriptures to your life. This month, we are going to be flexing our scholarly muscles to really dig into the Bible. The Chapter Summary method of Bible study will give you a good chance to really soak in the Word of God.
To start this method, you'll want to read your chosen chapter of the Bible at least five times. Try to find a Bible that doesn't have any notes so that your reading isn't tainted by someone else's insights. I'm not saying that all Bible notes are wrong, but if you can create your own notes, you will remember them much longer. Read the chapter in several different translations. This will help you get a good overall picture of the chapter.
