Why a course on learning the Bible? I mean, it's only a book - just read it, right? Not right. Many have tried to learn it without any help and fallen into the same traps.
The traps keep people from right understanding of God and His ways, and they can point people in a very wrong direction. Many strange religious beliefs and practices have been birthed from wrong Bible interpretation, but it doesn't have to happen.
This course will help you avoid the traps altogether and leap far ahead of most in understanding God and His Word.
I've included sections on the framework for all Bible understanding, the rules of Bible interpretation, how to choose a translation and the differences of each, and the different types of Bible study. Also, I've taken some key passages of misunderstanding and given clarification as an example of avoiding wrong doctrine. There is a section on suggested resources to complement your Bible study. And finally, I've included a Books of the Bible summary, where I give a brief expose on every book of the Bible.
This video course is designed to ignore the boring, unnecessary approach that one would get at a seminary, and take you right into things that help with life-application of the Bible - for YOUR life. And some of the material is taken directly from live teaching sessions.
Many a believer has gotten lost in their quest for the true God. Many a believer has a spiritual house of understanding that is shaky and rattly. And the reason is that they didn't quite understand the framework, or the foundation, for Bible interpretation.
“Never compare this Book with other books. Comparisons are dangerous. Never think or never say that this book contains the Word of God. It is the Word of God. It is supernatural in origin, eternal in duration, inexpressible in value, infinite in scope, regenerative in power, infallible in authority, universal in interest, personal in application, inspired in totality. Read it through. Write it down. Pray it in. Work it out. And then pass it on.”
The Bible has caused great joy in the lives of many people. It has also caused much dissension between people who interpreted things differently. But actually, if we consider the nature of a perfect and principled God, there can only be one right interpretation for the any particular concept or passage of scripture. By following a few surprising spiritual principles of Bible interpretation, the believer can be precise and correct in his belief.
Most Bible translations are acceptable, based on their application, but some are better than others.
Getting familiar with the Word of God - quick, easy, and with anticipation...
Just reading the Bible is first, and absolutely necessary. But it's not enough for full understanding nor quick spiritual growth. We all need additional resources to help us: concordances, books, online tools, phone apps, teachers and preachers, and more.
