The lectures in this module are designed to teach a believer how to interpret and study the Bible himself. Paul wrote, in 2 Timothy, chapter 2, and verse 15, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” In this pas- sage, our gaze is set on the Lord himself, not the applause or favor of men. We’re to strive to please the Lord, the Master we serve, and to labor in a manner that does not bring shame.
The lectures in this module are designed to teach a believer how to interpret and study the Bible. Our purpose is threefold: (1) equip you with Biblical principles for interpreting Scripture; (2) give you practical illustrations on how to apply those principles; and (3) provide you with a foundation on which you can build in your future studies. Let’s see why this subject so important, and what it actually means.
