How To Get The Most Out Of BCT

The following suggestions will make this study profitable.

    1. Pray To God. Ask God to help you understand His Word. Claim the promise of Psalm 119:130: “The entrance of thy Words giveth light, it giveth understanding unto the simple.” It is impossible to truly understand God’s Word without God’s help (2 Corinthians 2:14).

    2. Prepare Before Class.

      a. Answer Homework Questions. Complete all items of the Study Guide as directed. If you have trouble with a question, pass on to the next question.

      b. Read the Notes. Read and reread the lesson. Underline key thoughts, mark anything

      you do not understand or that you have questions about. Make notations on the wide

      margin at the side of each lesson.

      c. Look Up Key References. If time permits read
      all Scripture references from a modern

      translation such as the New American Standard Bible. A typical reference is written with the name of the book followed by the chapter number and verse number which are separated by a colon (example: Colossians 3:23). Most Bibles have a table of contents that lists the starting page number for each book of the Bible. After finding the page, locate the appropriate chapter and verse.

    3. Attend Class Regularly. There is a time for small group interaction as well as a lecture period. Your questions and comments will encourage others to share.

    4. Save Your Notes And Materials. These will help you in your further study and you may wish to share them with others.
