Bible Studies

May we be like the Bereans:

They “were very glad to receive Paul’s message.  They studied the Scriptures carefully every day.  They wanted to see if what Paul said was true.”

Acts 17:11 (NIrV)

Bible studies come in countless formats and from endless perspectives.  Probably the most challenging thing about studying the Bible and working through the Bible studies of others, is knowing what is objective truth, and what is subjective interpretation.  The Bible is objective truth, but must be carefully, and prayerfully interpreted, considered, and applied.  It is when blindly following the bible studies of a “notable” or popular “Christian” or true follower of Jesus that we can stumble.  

This is why the verse in Acts 17 about the Bereans is so inspiring to me:  “They studied the Scriptures daily to see if what Paul said was true.”  They wanted to know the truth.  

Don’t we all want the truth?

A word about Bible Studies:

A great strategy in studying the bible is to discuss it with a friend.  Read through the passage together first, then discuss and perhaps even read a commentary about the portion you are studying.  As tradition in synagogues around the world, a portion of the Old Testament, the Torah, is read every Saturday such that the entire Torah will have been read every year.  The first five books are separated into 54 portions they call a parashah.  Later, a related portion from one of the books of the prophets was also read.  And additionally, a related New Testament Portion ascribed for believers of Jesus the Messiah.  Here is that table outline:
