How to study the Bible with both our hearts & minds
How can I trust the accuracy of the Bible?
This helpful video from the Alpha course explains why the Bible is both trustworthy and accurate.
What Bible should I use?
The Bible was written originally in Hebrew, Greek and a bit of Aramaic, so has to be translated into English. There’s loads of great Bible translations, but at New Community we mostly use the English Standard Version (ESV). You can read it online, buy one or if you’d like to study in more depth you can get the ESV Study Bible.
Other ways to get into the Bible
We especially love how the Bible Project uses videos to explain themes and specific books of the Bible.
Study the Bible in community
One of the best ways to understand, learn and apply God's word to your life is in community, which is why we started the Bible course. The Bible course runs weekly for 8 weeks, and overviews the whole story of the Bible - you'll also get to meet other people growing in the word. Whether you're new to the Bible or you’ve read it hundreds of times, expect to learn loads on this course.
