Zettlekasten Bible Study

Old friend LaRosa just published this Zettlekasten Bible study. Thought there might be something here that might inform Relight.

Definitely gonna check this out. Thanks!

This kind of reminds me of something I’ve been learning in an inductive Bible study I’ve been doing. I was going through Philippians (link to inductive study) and you end up marking up a copy of the text (included in the back of the workbook) to indicate related ideas. For instance, I’ve highlighted all instances of "joy " or “rejoice” in yellow, all references to Christ in green, drawn a box around all commands/imperatives, etc. In Chapter 3 I’ve drawn a down arrow next to every instance of “loss,” a cloud shape around all “things,” and a few other symbols.

I’m not sure whether I get more out of reviewing the markings or just having thought hard enough about the text to have made them in the first place, but it was a really interesting approach. The leader of the study also had an app on his phone where he had developed a consistent system of marking/connecting concepts throughout the whole Bible. It might have been this one, but I’m not sure as I only saw it upside-down from across the table.

One of the videos has the person putting in the Bible text in its entirety into the Zettlekasten. It strikes me that Relight might be a good substitute for this since it also has additional helpful resources. The only thing missing is the link back to your own notes. We talked a bit about this before, but perhaps there is an opportunity when there are user accounts.
