Arcing the Word of God teaches the motivated student to read Scripture in context, proposition by proposition by learning to discern the biblical author's main point and how every other proposition serves that main point.
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. Each offering of the courses focuses study on a different book of the Bible. There is no prerequisite, although some knowledge of English grammar will be helpful.
