Reading the Bible in Context

One of my all-time favorite lessons to teach, now in video form.  I just narrated over the PowerPoint slides I use.

God tells us to read his word carefully: 2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

This lesson is very important, but it is also simple to follow. You don’t need a PhD in theology or to be fluent in the original languages to understand most Bible passages. Yet so many passages are misunderstood because people don’t read the verses that come before or after them. This lesson teaches simple ways to read the Bible in context, some commonly misunderstood passages, barriers to reading in context and how to overcome them, and more.
