I said I’d share the technique I’ve been taught at RCIA for reading/studying the Bible. Here’s what I do:
- Read the whole passage.
- Note down who is speaking and who is being addressed.
- Note down anything I don’t understand.
- Summarise the passage.
- Note down any applications of what it says – either at a personal level or more generally.
This is my adaptation of the full instructions and is offered in the spirit of ‘this is what works for me’.
