Online Bible study courses are in demand. One of the greatest assets of this website, The Third Well - www.thirdwell.org - is its vast array of Bible study courses and a wide spectrum of information that can be used in combination with other online study courses, study in church and synagogue, and study on one’s own.
One of the primary motivations of the creators and the sustainers of this website is to provide high quality material and other tools related principally to Bible-based, adult religious education for application by educators and other interested users. We believe that online Bible study course material will be valuable both to those who mainly use online resources as well as those looking online for tools to use in more traditional settings.
Typically, the sessions that are now taught at a Bible Study class at Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church contain the following information and tools - Bible text, guided questions, short summaries, lesson plans, and audio discussions in class. Together these materials make it possible for the “technological visitor” to take these Bible study courses online and/or to supplement his or her learning through these online Bible study resources.
