Rather than telling you what the book of I John teaches, I John on F.I.R.E. imparts the skills to discover its life-changing message for yourself. Students of the Bible will journey through I John, one paragraph at a time, applying the four F.I.R.E. principles:
Familiarity: Learn to ask probing questions and become intimately acquainted with each passage.
Interpretation: Determine the intended meaning of the text.
Relationship: Consider the passage within its context of 1 John and beyond, to the whole of Scripture.
Employment: Consider how God can employ you to do His will through your new understanding of the text.
Through this creative approach to inductive Bible study, readers will gain lifelong skills to grow in maturity as a disciple of Jesus, applying the Living Word in powerful new ways.
