Top 100: Executive Seminary Training These one hundred verses contain the core of Scripture. These are the big ideas that run through the Bible, skipping across its pages like stones on a pond. If you understand each primary passage, dozens of others will fall into place. If you get a handle on the top 100 verses you will know virtually 90% of what every preacher in America does. More importantly, you will be competent and confident to lead where you are to expand the Kingdom of God.

PROJECT COMPONENTS:

1. Core Verse: There are 52 key verses intended to be memorized [on Monday] by the participants over the course of a year. There is also a short commentary on each verse linked to the passage in the chart below [read on Tuesday]. 2. Trajectory Verses: There are three additional passages to be read after memorizing the core verse [Wednesday]. This will allow the participant to trace the tragectory of this key theme through other verses. You should observe how other biblical authors understand and develop each theme. Trajectory verses in bold are also part of the top 100 verses and should be memorized. 3. Story: Each verse has been augmented by a fuller story to be read in conjunction with it [on Thursday]. These stories will show in narrative form how the principle of the key verse was lived out in biblical history. 4. Application: Each participant should meet with a mentor weekly [Friday, Saturday, or Sunday] to talk about specific and practical ways he or she will apply the biblical principle in their life or ministry.
