Bible Study

For decades, InterVarsity’s ministry on campus has centered around manuscript Bible study, invented by InterVarsity staff Paul Byer in the 1950s. Manuscript study contains the three aspects of inductive Bible study: observation, interpretation, and application.

In manuscript Bible study, leaders act as facilitators who pass out printed passages, and members engage in communal discovery—generating questions together, sharing what they see and think, and discovering Scripture’s meaning for themselves.
