 Re: How do we read are bible?

Hia Dom :-D .

Happy to see you, up and about here, always.


To be excruciatingly-frank-honest-100% ...

I read it as "a little child" ... because that's how the Lord says, we are to come to HIM.

I keep the mind set, that little kids don't know Anything.

That they look to their Dads to explain.

They read really slow... One word at a time.
They like to ask, "What does this word mean ?"

And kids like to look at the whole picture of things. (Like the verse in context of the surroungding verses.)

You asked how do we 'read'. Welp, dat's it fer me.


'Study' is another thing... but I liked your question. :-)



God Bless ya,
Annie

 Re: How do we read are bible?

If you are referring to Bible study methods, one thing that I like to do is take a passage of Scripture or a short book and read it repeatedly over the course of several days and in several different translations and paraphrases. Once I feel I have a good grasp on the passage then I sit down and write notes, asking and answering questions about what I've read such as who, what, where, when, and why.

This is just one of the many useful bible study ideas from Howard Hendricks book [url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0802408168/104-5600483-0804768?v=glance]Living by the Book[/url]. This book really helped me to dig deeper into Scripture, his emphasis and ideas on observation methods are excellent.

"It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."(Proverbs 25:2)

In Christ,

Ron

 Re:

This is from John WycliffeIt Shall Greatly Helpe
Ye To Understande
Scripture
If Thou Mark...
Not only what is Spoken or Wrytten
but of Whom
and to Whom
with what Words
at what Time
Where
to what Intent
with what Circumstances
considering what Goeth Before
and what Followeth. I have never seen this advice bettered...

this is my own contribution from a little leaflet I wrote some time ago...

How shall I read my Bible portion?

Slowly. Prayerfully. Thoughtfully. Keeping in mind, not only the Bible context, but also your own personal context. Has God been speaking to you in the meetings, or through your contacts with others? Not looking for coincidences, but with the heart open to hear what God's word to you is at this present time. Not to prepare a topic for preaching later, but with these points mind.

As I read this passage is there…?

A truth which speaks to my heart.
An attitude of mine which needs to be changed.
A choice for me to make.
A sin to avoid or confess.
A promise that I can make my own.
A command for me to obey.
A victory or a defeat that I can learn from.
A glimpse of God's character that I can feed on.

 Re: I like I think charles spurgeon who says that all scripture

That the bible has another bible inside it!!
This may sound weird but that is what he says that if you study it long enough you will get to know the hidden bits!!
Does anybody find that the bible is an endless book. The more you know the less you know I am talking to everyone who is a greek and hebrew scholar to someone who has just read the bible.

Keith Green also talks about us putting on glasses when we read the bible of our lives and I find it is so true we read the bible in a different perspective that is why I want to get the Lords perspective as he wrote the blessed book!!

Blessings to you
Dom

 Re:

Read from beginning to end, then start again. It will seem boring at first, but with heartfelt prayer, you will begin to understand and see things that the great preachers saw, but what is better is things that no one showed you.

For instance:

Noah released the dove (the Holy Spirit), and only on the 3rd trip did he find a place to light upon.

Joseph was surrounded by his brothers whom he rebuked, but they sought his face, and were gathered around him, eleven of them, just as the disciples were around Christ.

Just as Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob reflect the three persons of the trinity, so do Peter, Stephen, and Paul. Peter fathered the falling of the Holy Ghost post crucifixtion time. His preaching fell on Stephen, whose death blessed Saul, and Saul was changed, then blessed many nations as Paul.

Notice also the death of Adam's son, Abel, as a reflection of Christ.

In Acts, who is the third disciple listed: John. Read John's third verse from his third book:
"Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Pivitol verse.

In Genesis, man rejected God though they professed Him. In OT, men rejected the LORD of the Jews though they professed God. In the gospels, men rejected the Son, though they claimed the Father. In Acts and today, men reject the Holy Ghost though they claim the Father and Son.

I sometimes say that my Bible has three testaments.

an Old Testament
a New Testament
an Old Testament read in the light of the New Testament.
