Transcript of Copy of Hook, Book, Look & Took

Planning Is important
What is a Hook?
Get attention
Set a goal for discussion
Act as a transition (to the Bible discussion)

Examples of a Hook
Small Groups (divide in groups to talk)
a Joke
Relate a current event/movie to the topic

Use a story (much like Jesus did)
(ex. Past Experiences)
Mini-Debate (split up sides
of the room, one speaker)
Media (Video Clip, Newspaper Article, Magazine Ad)
Word Study
Compare Scriptures to Statements


“A Hook Should…”

Appeal to discussion
Be focused on the group’s needs and/or interests
Be simple and direct

Necessarily be Biblical in nature but set
the stage for it
Be answerable with a Yes or No
“A Hook Shouldn’t…”
What does this Look like?
Guiding students to turn learnt truths into applicable principles
Setting the stage for application

Summarize the facts discovered and draw out the principles or truths.
Help clarify and formulate the truth(s) so application can be made.

Why Plan?
- Spontaneity has its place
- God is a God with a plan
- Planning is Biblical
- We plan many things in our life, why not lessons?

Why the Hook/Book/Look/Took Method?
- It's easy to remember
- It's easy to use
- It works as a teaching method
- It's flexible and leaves room for interaction
- It's Biblical
- Meaningful and purposeful exploring of the text
- To lead the learner to discover biblical truths
- To aid the learner in understanding the truths
- Make observations

How to:
- Should relate to the Hook portion of your discussion
- Should help in the discovery of the facts, usually by beginning with: Who? What? How? Why?
- Should clarify and define the truths discovered

- What in the book of Philippians brings Paul joy or causes him to rejoice?
- Who is talking to whom in this verse(s)?
- Where did this take place?
- Why do you think the passage(s) or verse(s) is here?

- Response is required
- The Word of God is of no effect until we can say it “took”
- James 2:17: “Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action is dead”
- To make personal, specific application of the Biblical truths discovered
- Change is desired

How To:
- Leads the class to pinpoint personal areas in which they could respond and helps them plan specific ways they will respond
- The resolution cannot be vague- we need to go beyond generalization and implementation to actually planning how we’ll change
- The creative Bible teacher knows this and they know how to help students respond by leading them to see God’s will and by helping them decide and how to plan to do it
- The goal is that lives are transformed

- Write down their goals
- Email students halfway through the week and remind them of their goals
- Bring it up the next week- talk about successes
- Have an accountability partner
- Have a take-a-way or a "Rich Janes"
