Verse mapping is a form of intense study of a Scripture, digging deeper for personal Bible study. This is our second verse mapping swap. Last month we each selected a favorite verse.

For May @circularlogic selected the passage for this swap. It is: James 1:5-6.

Here is a quick guide to the components of verse mapping: Read. Map. Summarize. Apply. Pray.

Some people call verse mapping the S.O.A.P. method of Bible study which is: Scripture. Observation. Application. Prayer.

Others refer to it as Inductive Bible Study.

You do not need to buy anything for this swap. You will simply need:

  • a journal or notebook or some sheets of paper

  • a Bible and/or a Parallel Bible or access to a site like BibleGateway which offers more than 20 translations

  • something to write with: pen, markers, journaling pen, colored pencils, etc.

  • optional: a concordance, a Bible dictionary, multi-colored markers, stickers if you're crafty.

The Scripture: James 1:5-6


Snail mail your partner a note or letter that includes the month's Scripture and what you learned or took away from the deep dive into the verse(s). You can add anything else you'd like to share.

Post below or send a PM with your suggestions for future verses for a deep dive via verse mapping.


In addition to the links above, here are some more resources for you to learn more about verse mapping.

Easy Bible Study Method by the Salvation Army. This site has several documents you can download and print.

For visual learners, YouTube has many how-to videos.

This is listed as a Type 3 swap given that it has the potential to be time-intensive.

Snail mail. USA. Group membership.
