Your Progress

Where do you even begin?

The Bible is magnificent.
But there sure is a lot to take in:

66 books.
3 Original Languages.
40 Authors. Thousands of Pages.
Law. History. Wisdom. Prophecy. Gospel. Epistles.
Difficult Names. Unfamiliar Locations. Complex Events.
Kingdoms. Dynasties. Prophets. Temples. People Groups.
Genres. Laws. Translations. Cultures. Leaders. Customs.



You may be familiar with the Bible, but that doesn't mean you feel confident in understanding it. Though you love God's Word, your Bible skills are not yet where you want them.

Are you feeling stuck?

"Why am I not growing? Why don't I know this better by now? Is there something wrong with me?"

Confused and overwhelmed?

"I wish I knew what all of these books, names, places and events mean, but I just don't."


"I've been around the Bible for far too long to know this little. It's embarrassing. Yet, what do I do?"

People stay stuck for years, not because they can't understand the Bible, but because they haven't been taught the essentials. Once you learn the fundamentals of Bible Study, your growth (and joy) will soar.

We've all been there

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the Bible, you are in good company! We've all felt that way.

There is a better way

No more aimless reading. It's time to approach Bible Study in a whole new way (that you will love).


When you start to really understand the Bible, it unlocks an entirely new level of joy for you.

sEE WHAT OTHERS are saying

Bodie invited some friends from his church to join a pilot group for the You Can Learn the Bible Academy. Here's what they had to say:

Bodie has developed the tools and an easy way to help me better understand the Bible in terms of context, history and application for my life.
Brigitte Holmdahl

Bodie has an incredible knack for breaking down books of the Bible and organizing the content into a very clear structure that makes learning incredibly successful and rewarding. I cannot recommend enough!

This Academy is teaching me how to simplify reading the Bible and continue to learn about God's faithfulness to us.

He combines the right amount of cross referencing, depth and passion to motivate attentiveness and the desire to learn. He works to leave no one behind. He loops back to his main points enough so the main message is not lost in the details.

Bodie has helped bring clarity and fresh perspective to my understanding of Biblical theology: Seeing the Bible as the integrated vibrant beautiful living Word of God.

you probably have questions

Here are some answers to some of the most common questions we hear:

What is included with my Academy Membership?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

Everything. Seriously! Your Academy membership is your all-access pass all Courses, Cohorts, Events, Community Discussions, and early access to Podcast Episodes before they get released. We want to give you the best value possible and keep things simple at the same time.

Do you sell your courses or cohorts individually?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

No. We believe that the real learning happens in community, and so even if you are most interested in one of our courses for your own learning, we want you to have a place to discuss what you are learning with others. Besides that, we also want you to have the flexibility to access all of our content, so we feel that it makes the most sense to bundle everything into the Academy membership.

Can you explain what you mean by Cohort, Courses and Community?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

The Academy is a private online space intended to provide you with everything you need in one place. The term "community" refers to the members of the Academy, but really, it's the discussions among members inside our Academy discussion board that creates the real community experience. Courses are recorded lessons made available for you to go through on your own at any time.

A cohort is sort of a blend of the two. Cohorts are like online classrooms where we have a main topic, goal and schedule. We all start at the same time and go through the content together. Cohorts combine the best parts of courses and community: live teaching and community discussions. Once completed, cohorts are archived into the Academy course library and available for reference to anyone, anytime, even if they were not part of the cohort.

How often will the cohorts take place? Where will you start?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

Our hope is to do 3-4 cohorts per year, one per quarter, possibly skipping the summer months. We are trying to strike the balance between way too much and not enough activity for people, and feel that one per quarter is a realistic rhythm. Since the Academy is still young, and the cohorts haven't been created yet, we will have to see how this goes. We will go in order, starting with Cohort 1 Bible Study Fundamentals, up through Cohort 5 United With Christ. Once we go through each one the first time, we will see how the experience was for everyone and determine where to go next.

Will my Membership Price Ever Go Up?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

As long as your membership remains in good status, your founding member rate is locked in for as long as you choose to be a member. However, if you cancel your membership and wish to rejoin, you would need to pay whatever the current membership rate is.

Why do you have a limit of 250 members?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

The challenge of online communities is that it's often hard to know who is part of the community and what they need. Most communities have a few very active members and it tapers down from there. By limiting the amount of members, it makes sure I can give each member the attention they deserve.

Is the Academy always open to join?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

After the Founding Membership signup period ends, we will close the doors until Q3 of 2023 (July) when we will open it up again. While I am still building out the cohorts and courses, the Academy will have open/close windows at the beginning of each new quarter. Down the road, I hope to have it open perpetually until we reach our 250 member goal.

Do I have to be a professing Christian to join?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

No, but I do imagine most people will be. However, if you are seeking to understand the fundamentals of the Bible, know that you are not required to profess any particular belief in order to join.

What tools do you use to run the Academy?
Down Pointing Chevron Icon

The Academy runs on Circle, the gold standard platform for online communities today. You can access it through a web browser by logging in on the You Can Learn the Bible homepage or through the Circle iOS or Android App.

Still have questions?

Send us a message! We would love to hear from you.


The You Can Learn the Bible Academy is the community I wanted when I started learning God's Word.

My goal is to reach those who are excited and hungry about learning God's Word, and help take them to the next level on their journey.

If you are ready to make an investment in your faith and knowledge (that will strengthen both you and those around you), then I would love for you to join me as we journey down The Bible Study Success Path together.

May God Bless you as you seek Him more and more!
