FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Why 'Trash'?

Here at TYB, 'trash' means to overuse, live in and wear out - we want you to over use and love your bible so much that it starts to fall apart!

 

How do I start?

Head to our Getting Started guide, where we explain how you can jump into our Book-By-Book Bible Study, and give you some resources to help you get the most out of your TYB Journey.

 

Do I have to start at the beginning?

Nope!  If you want to join our live schedule, subscribe here to receive our weekly emails.  You can also search by book or search by tyb schedule to choose a book. 

 

Do I have to follow the schedule live?

Not at all!  You are welcome to go at your own pace, in fact - we encourage you to do what works for you.  

 

How do I use this site for my Connect Group?

Great question! TYB is a great resource for your Connect Group. There are many ways you can do it but we suggest you run your group like a book club. You could use TYB to guide the group through the book. Get everyone to buy a Bible and choose the book you will be studying together. Then before the first meeting get everyone to read the first two chapters of the book you would like to study, then together at the meeting watch Part I Snapshot video and get a background of the book. Then discuss as a group, what each person got out of the reading / videos and any questions. Then the next week, get your group to read Part I TYB Dive and Deep Dive and a few more chapters at home. Then again meet together, share what you got out of it yourself, let them each share a revelation that God spoke to them about and so on. One week you can focus on the Deep Dive topic and go a little deeper, one week share a devotional on a verse that jumped out at you in your weekly reading, one week talk about a topic that really spoke to you, it is really up to you. Keep going until the book, videos, Dives etc are all read and you have all ‘Trashed your Bibles’ together!  

 

Do you have printed copies of the articles?

To get a copy of the article in print format, you can print the screen when you are in the article. Otherwise copy and paste the article into a Word doc and print it from there.  

 

What translation do you recommend?

If you're new to reading the bible, or you'd like something easier to understand, we recommend the New International Version NIV.  For more advanced Bible readers (our Deep Divers!), we recommend the ESV or New King James Version.  

Just a note!  We see the Message Bible and Passion Bible as an additional resource, and something that can be read alongside your Bible.  You won't find the repeated terms that we talk about as the scriptures are paraphrased.
