The DIG Bible Study Method provides an easy 3-Step approach to reading Scripture. Want to learn how to read the Bible? Here is a quick overview to get you started. Choose a simple passage — such as Psalm 23 or John 3:16 — and give it a try. Start learning to hear from God through His Word today.
DIG Bible Study Method Overview
Prayerfully follow these three easy steps…
Carefully read the passage paying attention to details, such as names, places, verbs, cultural elements…any words you see in the text.
Read the passage again at a normal pace, noticing the details in context and how God intentionally wove them together.
Finally, the most important question is: What did God reveal about Himself in the passage?
After seeing God revealed first, the Lord will unfold insights about humanity and about you, too.
Leaders Who Use DIG…
I shared this method with a group of leaders in camping ministry in Jamaica a few years ago. As we read through a passage using this method, one woman in her 50’s exclaimed through tears that it was the first time she had ever felt that she could read and study scripture for herself. — Lana Jernigan, Director of Ministry at Camp Dixie (Fayetteville, NC)
I have used the DIG Bible study method for about eight years with a women’s Bible study in my home. For those new to the Bible, the DIG method does not seem intimidating. They are able to determine the details, and along with everyone else come to conclusions about what God is revealing about Himself. For those more familiar with the Bible the DIG method has challenged old habits and shaped how they now look at Scripture passages. — Caralee Hudson, Bible study leader at Silver Creek Family Church (Lynnwood, WA)

Nice to Meet You…
My wife, Katie, and I have three kids. The Lord had us relocated to Nampa, ID in June 2019.
I most recently pastored at Unity Church (a Protestant evangelical church in Four Oaks, NC) until the end of March 2019. Previous to that, I planted and pastored Church on the Hill in urban Seattle for 13 years.
In addition to discipling and training folks in the Scriptures, Katie and I recently launched Fivespot, a website design and marketing company in the Boise area.
I’m glad you’re here! Ready to DIG?
