The 3-Step Method
In this session, we'll illustrate that it is actually nothing new. People do it all the time. You do it too! [ more... + ]
Ah!For example, a doctor, what's the first question he asks you? "What is your disease?" Of course not! He'll ask you how you feel, but he's going to find out for himself as well. He tells you to say 'ah'. He then looks into you mouth, perhaps noting the colors, shape, and size of your tonsils. To the untrained like us, we don't really know what to look for. But he does! Then he may ask you some questions like 'does it hurt?' or 'when did you start feeling sick?' After that he will tell you what he thinks you're suffering from - in other words his diagnosis. Then he'll write you a prescription for medication.
??Another example: a teacher. He gives his lecture to the class. But he wants to make sure that his students are paying attention and understand the material. He keeps an eye on the reaction of his students - facial expressions, posture (face on palm propped up by the elbow?), responses (questions asked or answers given), etc. If he thinks that many of the students don't understand, he will try to explain some more in a different way, or asks what they don't understand.

CSIAnother good example is a CSI - crime scene investigation technician. She looks for hair, fiber, finger prints, blood stains, and a number of other things. Then she interprets what they mean. For example, blood droplets - if one has a 'tail', it helps her to figure out the direction of the source and maybe also the velocity at which the droplet was traveling before it landed.

You?All these people are skilled and know what to look for. On your job, how do you go through the same 3 steps of OIA? Or if you're a student, how do you go through those steps to minimize study time and maximize your education?
But when studying the Bible inductively, what do you look for?
"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work."
2 Tim. 3:16,17 (NAS)
