What Sets The Bible Study Bundle Apart

All course instructions, written assignments, and tutorials are designed around Logos Bible Software. Logos is a versatile study tool capable of meeting diverse ministry needs.
Each course provides hands-on exercises to give you practical experience in conducting biblical research including word, passage, and character studies.
Instructions for each assignment are accompanied by guided tutorials to help you implement each research method using Logos Bible Software. Learn the skills and develop the confidence to go deeper in Bible study than you ever have before.

With the Bible Study Bundle, you'll learn to:

  • Understand the basics of the primary Biblical languages: Greek and Hebrew.

  • Apply key principles of biblical interpretation such as the First Mention Principle, the Context Principle, the Comparative Mention Principle,
    the Christo-Centric Principle, and others.

  • Interpret Scripture passages more accurately by understanding their literary genre.

  • Conduct thorough Word, Passage, Book, Place, and Character Studies.

  • Strengthen your preaching and teaching through improved exegetical skills.

  • Use hermeneutical skills to evaluate and respond to contemporary social issues.

The Bible Study Bundle includes access to the complete series of our skills-focused Bible study courses.

This bundle includes three sequential courses: Intro to Bible Study, Bible Research, and Hermeneutics. Each course consists of in-depth lectures and practical assignments that will both increase your knowledge and give you the skills to discover Biblical truths on your own.

Intro to Bible Study

Intro to Bible Study is the first in this series of three courses designed to develop your personal Bible study skills. In this course, you will begin by learning about the origin and translation of Scripture, but the bulk of the course is dedicated to developing your skills in studying the Bible. You will be introduced to the basic resources and tools used to conduct studies on Bible words, characters, and passages. Intro to Bible Study is a prerequisite to the Bible Research course.

Bible Research

Bible Research is the second course in this three-course series and is designed to equip you for more in-depth Bible study. It combines both research methods and interpretation principles. Bible Research is an advanced course that focuses on the tools and methods used to study the Bible as well as some of the basic principles of interpreting Scripture. It is a prerequisite to the Hermeneutics course.


Hermeneutics is the final course in this series designed to give you the knowledge and skills to study the Bible in depth for yourself. Hermeneutics is an advanced course that moves beyond tools and methods to focus on accurate interpretation and proper application of the Word of God.

Course Requirement

The principles pulled from the lectures can apply to any pursuit to study the Bible. There are numerous resources and software on the internet that can perform research functions for Bible study. However, this bundle is developed with owners of Logos Bible Software in mind. The tutorials built-in to each course are solely for Logos software. Students may utilize other software or online tools, however, we don't provide any instructions on how to navigate websites or software other than Logos.

If you would like to take advantage of Logos as your study tool, this bundle requires at least the Starter Library of Logos with some additional purchases:

Dictionary of Biblical Languages: Hebrew
Dictionary of Biblical Languages: Greek
Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary
Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary (recommended)
The New Bible Dictionary (recommended)

Links to download these additional resources are provided in each course.

  • Can I download the course content?

    All PBC courses offer comprehensive course notes, which include the points, scriptures and even charts and images that every student can download and keep when the course is done. Students are not able to download actual course lectures to their devices. PBC offers many free lectures and resources to our community, but entire courses are copyrighted.

  • What are the technical requirements to participate?

    Students must have a computer (PC or Mac) and access to a high-speed internet connection to stream videos. Many lectures should also play on mobile and tablet devices, but the PBC help desk is unable to provide technical support for those. The lectures will work on any browser, but we have found Firefox to provide the most consistent display.

  • Where do I get help if I experience technical issues?
