How to Study the Bible
July 12, 2007
A departure from the usual lecture style, these sessions on how to study the Bible were conducted informally and with more discussion. Three basic and distinct operations in Scripture study were outlined:
1. Observation: What does the text actually say?
2. Interpretation: What was the passage intended to mean to God’s people – spiritually?
3. Application: How does the basic meaning or spiritual principle apply to me or to my situation personally?
