Five Key Elements

Disciples should have an intense thirst and hunger for God’s Word, but modern-day disciples, however, sometimes get discouraged about reading the Bible because of its antiquity and foreign culture. Sometimes they get so enthralled by the Bible’s antiquity and alien culture that they fail to apply its teaching. Modern-day disciples may segment a familiar verse from its context and fail to understand its intended meaning, and sometimes they fail to integrate Scripture into theology. For all these reasons, our new discipleship tool emphasizes five key elements for Scripture study.

Amplify the Background

Because the Bible was written long ago in a culture different from ours, we investigate rigorously to ridge the gap separating us moderns from the biblical writers. We present all the necessary background information so our readers can understand the biblical passage.

Amplify the Text

One of the legacy features of our publications is the exposition of the text. We focus on the original author’s intended message to his original audience, addressing the question, What was the author conveying to them back then? We hone in on the verse-by-verse details to explain the passage’s big picture.

Amplify the Context

Many Christians see Scripture as piecemeal. We want disciples to see how individual stories and texts are connected to the whole biblical story. We read the text as sentences within a paragraph and paragraphs within a larger text unit. This is basic exegesis. But our readers should also understand how the entirety of a book fits into the whole of Scripture and the larger biblical history. We write to show how each text interconnects to form a majestic and awe-inspiring picture of God’s plan.

Amplify the Faith

Christians need to allow Scripture to inform their thinking and basic Christian doctrine. We believe that God inspired His Word and that we should accept it as the rule of our lives as we seek to follow the Spirit’s guidance. To this end, we spell out how the biblical text informs Bible doctrines and how we should think.

Amplify Your Life

Our goal is not to create a bunch of smart, brainiac Christians. Yes, we want Christians to be competent readers of the Bible, but this is not enough. We do everything we can to help disciples apply the text to their lives so that they grow in Christ’s likeness. We think deeply about the text, explicitly seeking ways to articulate the principles of the ancient text to us today and to the specific individual. We are most urgent about the Christian formation of Christ-followers.

Green testimonial quote.

I was pleased to review the Amplify Christ curriculum and loved what I saw! Things that stood out to me:

  • Love the Who, What, When, Where, Why at the beginning of each lesson. It gives a concise view of what the lesson will cover.
  • I really like the Background section—that is extremely important to understanding the text and this was particularly well done.
  • The exposition of the scripture not only taught the text but gave thoughtful questions and other scriptures to consider as you looked at that particular text.
  • I loved that there was thoughtful application to assist the learners in how this scripture could help them in their lives in several places throughout the lesson and — the Discussion Questions helped facilitate that as well.

This adult curriculum is sound and provides the member and leader with maps, many other scriptures to do deeper study and yet was easy to read and follow.
