How to use the
Topical Book-by-Book Index


1.Turn to the Topical Book-by-Book Index of Contents,      pages 193 to 213, to find the topic of choice you want to preach on, read or study.
2.To the left of the topic, you will see the section numbers.
3.To the right of the topic, you will see its starting page number and then the relevant synoptic texts for in-depth study.


How to Develop
Themes and Doctrines

4.To use the cross-references, notice the superscripts, raised numbers, in your section of choice. Then go to the Internal Cross References (pages 183 to 190). 
Find the chapter number, the bolded section number and superscript(s). To the right of these, you will find their cross-reference(s) for more exhaustive study.
5.A chain of such cross-references initiates a biblical theme, a principle, a doctrine etc. Three of such: the principles of Position Reversal Group 1, the Healing Christ Group 2, and His Inner Thought Omniscience Group 3, are listed in the lower portion of the third column of page 189. Developed examples of these three themes are shown on pages 171 to 179.
6.More of such principles and themes can be developed by thus chain-referencing within Footprints itself.
7.Many more can be developed by chain-referencing further into the rest of the New Testament, and still many more by expanding the chain referencing into the Old Testament.
8.As users of Footprints develop more principles, themes and doctrines, please, share them with us at so as to further enrich this literature and our mutual lives.
9.Have a blessed study.
