Asking those additional questions to understand will help build a bridge between observation (the first step) and interpretation (step two) of the Bible study process. I even spent a lot of time reading the scriptures, reading Christian books, and attending Bible studies for beginners. Reading what comes before the passage being studied, what comes after, and what the Bible says as a whole about the subject being studied, are key concepts to keep in mind. I just finished writing (this is how I learn best) my third book of Bible Studies and its publication is wonderful.
He studied philosophy of religion and apologetics at Denver Seminary and is pursuing postgraduate studies in philosophy at the Southern Evangelical Seminary. For example, the Greek Text Commentary of the New Testament is a highly technical series that would be indiscernible to anyone who has not studied Greek for more than two years. Thank you very much, but I want to follow you on Twitter or Facebook. You've really simplified my approach to Bible studies.
In general, however, it is enough to have a basic understanding of the immediate context of what is being studied. While studying the subject of love, I learned that it is more than a warm and confusing feeling; it is a decision you make every day to treat people the way Jesus would treat them. The first was an important compilation of multiple studies, which I started by myself and continued, after discovering how my mother sincerely wanted and needed a framework to study and find in her Bible. For example, you could say that within the next 10 years you will have studied a certain number of books of the Bible in this way, devoting perhaps three hours a week to study (which is no substitute for your separate “quiet time”).
