How to use ScriptureStoryline

ScriptureStoryline is an expression of Biblical Theology. Every book of Scripture is give attention as an independent portion of God’s Word with its own context and contribution(s), then synthesized with the whole of Scripture. Each book of the Old Testament is surveyed in its own right, including how specific texts and themes from each book is used in the New Testament. Each book of the New Testament is likewise analyzed for its message, with special attention to its use of specific Old Testament texts and themes. A unique feature of ScriptureStoryline is that the Psalms and Proverbs are not studied individually, but, as often as possible, in accord with the situation that prompted their composition. Where we are unsure as to the original situation of a Psalm/chapter of Proverbs, it is placed thematically in the study plan.


ScriptureStoryline commentaries are organized in two  formats: (1) Old and New Testament commentaries provide a framework for studying any particular book of Scripture. The commentaries provide a curriculum for teachers, classes and small groups. (2) Daily commentaries are available for delivery to your inbox. These cover the entire Bible in one calendar year and facilitate personal or family worship. To follow the program you will need to devote at least 30 minutes/day for adequate reading and reflection.  Make it a goal to do all of the private reading in one sitting, if possible. Generally speaking, the readings in the New Testament will be shorter—but don’t sell yourself short by giving these shorter readings a shorter amount of time; rather savor the message of the text.
