Swedish Bible Study Method

There are many different ways and methods to study the Bible – you can read the whole Bible, you can study the Bible book by book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, thematically, topically, by character, biographically, by word, etc. In this blog post we will teach you how do a Swedish Method Bible study.

Here is how you do a Swedish Method Bible Study:

1. Pray

Before you start your Bible study, you should pray to God and ask Him to guide and help you in your Bible study.

2. Choose a Bible passage

Choose a Bible passage and read it thoroughly.

3. Light Bulb

Write down what stuck out to you from the passage you have read.

4. Questions

Write down any questions that arose reading your passage.

5. Heart

Write down the main idea or theme of the passage.

6. Arrow

Apply what you have learned from this passage to your own life.

7. Circular Arrows

Write down how this passage fit with other passages in the Bible.

8. Talk Bubble

Who will you tell about what you have learned?

9. End with prayer

You should always end your Bible study with prayer thanking God for what He has revealed to you. Ask God for helping you apply the verses and findings to your own life and to share them with other people.

The Swedish Bible Study Method is especially helpful for doing a group Bible study as you explore and study God’s Word with observation of the text, compare it with other Bible passages, apply what you have learned to your own life, and talk with others about what you have learned.

We are a non-denominational Bible-believing Christian ministry trained and equipped at the Christian Leaders Institute. Even though our ministry is based on God's Word, the Bible, you need to approach our teachings like the Bereans and always study the Bible yourself to see if what we teach is aligned with what is written in the Bible.  

Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. Acts 17:11 NIV  

We are only humans who 'stumble in many ways' (James 3:2) and we only 'know in part and we prophesy in part' (1 Corinthians 13:9).
