Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
- Shorter Topical Studies: concise topical studies, dedicated to brief but thorough treatments of individual concepts.
- Longer Topical Studies: in-depth topical studies, in the manner of longform non-fiction books.
- Verse-by-verse Studies: detailed Bible study notes, organized by chapter and verse.
- Q&As: questions and answers by topic. Some of these Q&As come from correspondence with site readers, while others (both questions and answers) are completely of my own creation.
While these four categories of resources are organized independently, across all of them, much content supports all three communication mediums: text, video, and audio.
If you'd like to get a pretty thorough general summary of what this ministry is about, the Ministry Introduction and General Overview video on the YouTube channel is a good place to start.
In short, BibleDocs is a site dedicated to in-depth Bible teaching and resources related to Bible study, apologetics, evangelism, and more. All Christians should read their Bible often, no matter what sort of role they occupy in the Body of Christ. However, God has provided gifted individuals in the Church to supply Christians with additional spiritual nourishment (Ephesians 4:11-16). Pastor-teachers, for example, exercise their spiritual gifts to mine truth from scripture and present it in different forms to others, according to the ministries assigned to them by Christ (1 Corinthians 12:4-6). Bible teaching does not replace Bible reading; rather, it supplements it. Likewise, apologetics and evangelism helps never replace the Bible, but are used alongside it to make ministry more effective.
The materials on this site are written with this perspective in mind: that scripture is the final authority in all things, and that activities like Bible teaching, apologetics, and evangelism must necessarily stem directly from the Bible, being undertaken by gifted and prepared individuals.
All materials on this site strive to keep the focus on the Biblical text. Greek and Hebrew are brought to bear as necessary, along with discussions of hermeneutics and proper exegesis. Arguments from probability and matters of personal application are clearly distinguished from Bible teaching with direct support from scripture. Read more about how this site distinguishes between types of content here.
Christians are called to learn Biblical truth, believe it, apply it in the real world under shot and shell, and then help others do likewise. While the specifics are always personal, by listing out application variables and describing them, this site tries to make application as straightforward as possible. You can read more about how this site handles discussion of application here.
Different Christians are at different places in their spiritual walk. To make content useful to everyone, this site has resources for new believers all the way through resources for very advanced Christians. No matter the spiritual level, writing on this site tries to maximize accessibility by avoiding unnecessary complexity. You can read more about how this site uses content level here, and writing level here.
A central part of this ministry is fielding and answering questions from everyday Christians (and then topically organizing and posting the questions and their respective answers once enough of them have accumulated), so please do not be shy to reach out — you'll be helping the site in the long run. You can reach me at email@example.com.
(With regard to these Q&As on the site, I anonymize everything not written by me, and I also honor all requests to refrain from posting correspondence).
