Abundant Life

Teaching: Tools for Basic Bible Study – Part Four

Read part one, part two, or part three.

Every Sunday I provide videos and valuable links to the Truth or Tradition teachings. We’ve been following the Truth or Tradition teachings for many years now and they have truly blessed our family. We have found peace and happiness through our beliefs and we walk confidently for God. My hope, by passing on this information to you, is that what you find here, or on the Truth or Tradition website, will guide you to a better, more blessed and abundant life.

If you would like to read my views on religion and how we got started with the ministry, you can read this.

Let’s get started:

From the Bible Study Guide

There is a depth and richness in the Bible that will keep any student occupied and excited for a lifetime. Students of the Bible should have a growing knowledge of English because the vocabulary of Scripture is rich and powerful. The greater appreciation one has of the language he is reading, including its figures of speech, the easier it is to see nuances in the text. Furthermore, the biblical accounts did not happen in a vacuum, but in a cultural context. Therefore, studying the cultures and customs of the biblical times, especially Israelite, Greek, and Roman, adds much depth of understanding to reading the Bible. Thankfully, there are many good books available today on the history, culture, and customs of the peoples in the Bible.

Studying the ancient languages themselves, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, can open our understanding in many ways. Even having a little knowledge about the history and development of the Bible from its earliest manuscripts until today will give any student a greater appreciation and understanding of the translations we have today. There is a lot to study, and each Christian must decide how much time he wants to spend and how deep he wants to go with the tools that are available.
