Paraphrasing is a way to check our own understanding. It's an attempt to clearly and concisely summarize what we have discovered so far about a verse. This practice is important in the process of deepening our learning. 

In our Abidible study, you'll see that paraphrasing only comes after we've done the hard work of digging through:

  • Multiple readings
  • Lettering
  • Repetitively copying
  • Recording + listening exercises
  • Annotating
  • Background research
  • Comparison of Bible versions
  • Word study
  • Cross-referencing 

At this point, we want to check for understanding. Are you able to take all that you've learned and paraphrase the verse in your own words?

How to Paraphrase

  1. For a quick refresher, glance back at the work you've done so far on the verse.
  2. Make an attempt (in pencil if you'd like) at paraphrasing what is being said.
  3. Remember that you won't do it perfectly and you're not being "graded." Give yourself the space and freedom to struggle and to create what may feel like an imperfect paraphrase.

That's it! Give it a go.

Let's Abide,

Jason and Kate
