X Bible Core Course (XBCC)
The xBCC is a second-level course registered with the University of the Nations College of Christian Ministries.
This 12-week intensive course equips students with tools to study the Bible inductively following the steps of prayer, observation, interpretation, application and proclamation. Leaving behind preconceived ideas, students approach Scripture as detectives – observing evidence that allows Scripture to speak to them, rather than imposing their ideas on the text.
In studying the Bible inductively, we recognise that Scripture was originally written to a particular audience – and that audience wasn’t us! The Bible was written for us, but not to us. As we understand more about the culture and history of the people to whom Scripture was originally addressed, and what the text would have meant to them, we can more faithfully apply Biblically sound interpretations to our own lives, today.
