My current bible study technique is to outline the Bible. It helps me remember what I have read. Also, it helps me with my long-term goal to have the locations of the topics of the bible memorized. I currently am working on Deuteronomy and Matthew. You can see my work so far here. I’m hoping by putting this on the Internet, it will give me more motivation to do it. The outline will obviously leave stuff out, and I am not trying not to put my interpretation of the bible in the outline. I am trying just to explain what is happening in the verse. My outline is currently averaging about 25% of the words in the original text. So it is not exhaustive, but it is not sparse either. This will helpfully help someone else with their bible study, too.
