14. Phrasing 101

Phrasing is one of, if not the most, amazing tool you will ever develop for your Bible study. It lays the passage out graphically and forces you to decide what are the main thoughts and how the other statements modify those main statements. We start by looking at 1 Peter 1:1–5 in the textbook, and 1 Timothy 2:1–7 is the screencast.



Exercises: Phrase 1 Timothy 2:1–7
