The Bible is not supposed to be difficult to understand. It was written by regular folks for regular people, using everyday language and everyday-life examples. God's simple message of hope and salvation for everyone is not hidden behind mysteries or secrets in obscure texts.
Why then is it so hard to understand?
This workshop will talk about the main challenges to effective Bible study and the basic skills you need to overcome them. These fundamental concepts and skills will equip you to read and understand the Bible better, whether you are doing it in your personal quiet time, leading family devotions, facilitating small group Bible studies, or even if you are currently going through a formal Bible study course.
Among other things, you will learn
-How to use all those study guides like commentaries, concordance and dictionaries
-How to figure out the original meaning of a passage
-How to accurately discern and apply Biblical truths to your life
-How to avoid misunderstanding the text and making mistakes in interpretation
And if you are struggling with a particular passage, print it out and bring it along for a hands-on practice!
