“Know God Deeply. Live Differently”
Precept Scotland are here to help you learn how to study the Bible.
We teach you the “Inductive” method of study which can be applied to any portion of Scripture so you can see the truth for yourself, discern what it means, and then apply that truth to your life.
No matter what your age, if you can read, you can learn effective skills that will make all the difference.
The best way to learn about the Inductive method of Bible study is to try it for yourself. We would recommend our free Lightning Studies to start with. To watch a simple, clear demonstration of how to use a Lightning Study please click here.

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus who make disciples
Jesus said “Go therefore and make disciples …teaching them to observe all that I commanded you” Matthew 28:19-20
The Precept Bible School equips students with skills and tools to know God better through leaning how to accurately handle the Word of God, so they can discover truth for themselves, and it empowers them to make disciples of others, so the kingdom of God grows in number and maturity.
There is a face-to-face and an online element to the Precept Bible School, offering students flexibility and unique resources, training and ongoing support.
We are currently offering 6 courses over a 2-year period and encourage each student to make it a priority to complete all 6 courses. You can start with any of the 6 courses and if you miss a course you can complete it at a later date. We strongly encourage students to disciple others by putting into practice what they have learnt when back in their local communities, and that they also encourage other people to attend the Precept Bible School in-person.
We also offer a growing library of online teaching videos that anyone can access, to be trained in using our 40 Minute topical series and other life-transforming studies (see below).
