How to Teach the Bible


Number of Lessons: 4Avg. Lesson Length: 13 MinutesTime Required: 1.5 Hours MinimumLevel: Intermediate


Teaching the Bible to others is an important responsibility that should be practiced with great care. This course introduces the foundational skills that will guide a Bible teacher step-by-step through the process of preparing an effective Bible-study course or session.


Definitely a start regarding becoming and being an effective Bible teacher. I appreciate that the lecturer was clear that this is only an introduction and is intended for those lay-persons who find that they have the privilege of teaching God’s word in a non-academic environment. We definitely need more lay-teachers in the work environment, on secular campuses, at the neighborhood diner, even on public transportation. This was a very helpful course. Thank you.
