Most Americans have a Bible, but many have never read it. Perhaps they started to read it, but gave up after reading a few chapters.
Why? Maybe because the Bible seems to be such an intimidating book. It even looks difficult to read, with its hundreds of pages of small type and old-fashioned, hard-to-understand language. This makes it seem dignified, but imposing and not very “user-friendly.”
This series is designed to help you explore the Bible and see for yourself what it is like, what it is about and how you can learn to use it.
In part 2, we dig a little deeper into principles for studying the Bible, the reasons that we can trust the Bible as accurate, yet without taking it further than it was designed to go. Paul told Timothy the purpose of Scripture: “The Holy Scriptures…are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:15-17).
In part 3, Gary Deddo explains why we need a theological approach in the way we look at Scripture. We need to study all things according to their own nature—we cannot measure the volume of audio in the same way that we measure the volume of a liquid. When we look at Scripture, we need a frame of mind that is in harmony with its purpose for us, or else we are likely to miss the point.
