Have You Tried Verse Mapping?
Have you heard about Verse Mapping?
Have you even tried it yourself?
Verse Mapping is a Bible study process developed by author Kristy Cambron. She first introduced the process a few years ago, and I've been watching as it's taken off, but admittedly, haven't tried it myself. With the release of the new Verse Mapping Bible, I thought I'd give it a try.
- Choose: Select a verse and write it out.
- Compare: Record this verse in two or three other Bible translations and underline key words that are the same or different between translations.
- Research: Look up the Hebrew or Greek meaning for the underlined words and record it.
- Consider: Ask questions of the verse. Imagine what it would be like to have experienced what’s happening. Read the verses surrounding this verse and use other study tools to dig even deeper, if you prefer.
