Living history is comprised of many things. At Living History Sites, we deem living history to be the sites where history comes alive! That can be a battlefield, museum, reenactment, historical home, place where something historical happened.

It can also be a place you learn about history.

There is no better place to learn about Biblical History than at Precept Ministries International, in Chattanooga Tennessee!

The heart of Precept is teaching people how to discover truth for themselves. They have dedicated themselves for almost 40 years to teaching people everywhere how to discover truth by studying God's Word inductively.

Inductive study is a tool, to help you get into the Word and know truth. Precept teaches you the inductive study method, an investigative approach that teaches you to pull truth out of scripture through observation, interpretation and application. Using these tools, you observe scripture through the 5 Ws and H, asking the who, what, where, when, why and how. As they like to say, if you can read a newspaper, you can study scripture.

What does this have to do about history?


At Living History Sites we believe that the Bible is the living Word of God. "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for rebuke, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 NASB

In the New Testament, the Bible tells us in the first chapter of John, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God." John 1:1-2. In verse 14, we read "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth."

Going to the first chapter of the Bible, Genesis, we read in the first verse, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters." Gen 1:1

We believe that history began with that verse - "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." We believe wholeheartedly that time began when God spoke. Living history begins the Bible.

If you have ever wanted to understand the history of the Bible, Precept is a great place to learn tools to study scripture for yourself, understanding biblical history in a whole new light. The inductive study method teaches you how to understand context. You study scripture in it's surroundings. You don't just extract a verse and put your own spin on it, making it fit your human desire of the moment. You stay in context. Context is king and thwarts the ability to extract a verse and put the spin of the day on it. You learn about looking words up in the original languages, the Hebrew and the Greek, to really understand deeper what the Word is saying.

Truth is undeniable.

We highly encourage everyone to learn more about studying inductively through Precept Ministries. Whether you are a Christian, someone in church all their life, wondering about the God of the Bible, curious about who Jesus is, a seeker, or just someone who stumbled across this website looking for history, know that you can absolutely KNOW truth by studying the Bible. Knowing truth for yourself, not what some TV evangelist says, will lead you to a real relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, understanding who He is and why He did what He did on the cross. It will illuminate how you are to live your life. It will illuminate who you can be IN Him.

Precept has training courses going on all the time. The Living History Sites crew had the honor of attending two training courses this summer, at the Precept campus in Chattanooga. A day of equipping and learning, it was amazing! The highlight of anything and everything we did this summer!

Switching back to LHS mode, when you take a class at Precept, you have the option of having a phenomenal lunch. The food at Precept is amazing, no matter what season. Fresh greens for the salads, delicious BBQ, amazing deserts, tasty vegetables, all with great taste and relatively good for you! It isn't your normal "church cooking" but something to fuel you through the day, so you can pay attention to what is going on!

When you attend an event or class at Precept, not only will you spend hours with a teacher or an instructor pouring the Word of God into you, you will leave absolutely changed.  

We highly recommend taking a class, seminar, attending an event at Precept Ministries. Send us an email when you do!
