Learning and Living the God-centered life

One Biblical Doctrine at a time…

Bible Interpretation

At the front end of this video we see how many Bible studies are done in the home. This is NOT how to do Bible study. Notice in this clip how the facilitator is asking each of those participating how they feel or think about the Scripture that was read. Folks, the question is not what you think or feel but actually what is God saying to us through His word. The cardinal rule for proper Bible study is as follows: The interpretation of any Scripture is equal to what the author meant at the time he wrote it. Therefore it becomes our job through prayer and the Holy Spirit to use good Bible study methods in order to arrive at the author's intended meaning.
