I discovered a method for introducing visual images into my Bible study last year around this time, and my version of "Scripture Journaling" was born. As I mentioned in my original post, I use some of the structure and symbols from Sketchnotes to organize my thoughts about the Bible passages I am reading.
Recently, I began reading through the Bible along with Courtney over at Women Living Well. We started in the Book of Esther in September, then jumped into some letters from Peter and John in the New Testament. When she headed into Genesis in October, I decided to pause and go back to Peter and John's letters, taking some time to re-read them and "scripture journal" about them.
I started with this:
|I use the New International Version as my preferred translation.|
|I use the SOAP method to write out notes during my Bible study.|
|A finished page in my visual scripture journal|
|A closer look at part of a page about 1 Peter 1|
|Still in 1 Peter 1, verses 10 through 14|
|The whole journal page for 1 Peter 1:10-22|
|The whole journal page for 1 Peter 1:24-2:7|
