    It is not intended to be read as history text, a science book, or a political manifesto. In the Bible, God teaches us the truths that we need for the sake of our salvation. The sum is greater than the parts. Read the Bible in context. What happens before and after – even in other books – helps us to understand the true meaning of the text. This book [Grasping God's Word] addresses how to cross over that river into the world of today. We need a valid, legitimate approach to the Bible, one that is not based strictly on intuition and feeling. We need an approach that derives meaning from within the text, but one that also crosses over to the situation for today’s Christian.

    To say that humans and God are different is the ultimate understatement. No wonder we have a hard time understanding Him. Thankfully, he has overcome our limitations by revealing himself to us” Jesus, according to the Bible, is God’s ultimate means of revealing himself to us (Hebrews ). Psychology of religion consists of the application of psychological methods and interpretive frameworks to the diverse contents of religious traditions as well as to both religious and irreligious individuals. The extraordinary range of methods and frameworks can be helpfully summed up regarding the classic distinction between the natural-scientific and human-scientific approaches.

    Understanding God's word is a must to us who teachers, given the opportunity to speak, witness to others. We must handle the word of God with care. If you believe there is more to God's words and need a foundational start, I recommend Understanding God's Word. Read s:   Understanding God’s Word is not a matter of superior intellect. God looks on the heart, our attitude and approach, to determine whether to give us understanding. The apostle Peter tells us: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality.

The Language of God: A Commonsense Approach to Understanding and Applying the Bible (Walking with God Series) Paperback – Novem by J.A. Crabtree (Author), David Crabtree (Author),/5(3). How to Study the Bible is designed to give a student the information and tools required to begin effectively studying the Word of God.

The course will cover a wide assortment of topics ranging from basic Biblical information, e.g. the number of books in the Bible, to the use of advanced study aides such as Concordances and Bible Commentaries. The Bible is God’s book, and we need to ask Him what it means.

If you are a Christian, the author of Scripture—the Holy Spirit—dwells inside you, and He wants you to understand what He wrote.

Second, to study the Bible properly, we cannot pull a verse out of the verses that surround it and try to determine the meaning of the verse outside. The Bible shows us how to approach God the right way and the wrong way. When we approach Him correctly, we get results. Just like there is correct protocol for approaching royalty in the natural, there is protocol when coming to God.

By learning to come to God how the Bible teaches, we will get more answered prayers. They begin by addressing the plan of God, the predetermined or predestined will of God, the covenant arrangements of God, the decrees of God, God’s methods of operation, the precepts of God, the Law of God, the grace of God, etc.

Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, read more.

let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed. 5 approaches to interpreting Revelation Like all books of the Bible, Revelation was written in a particular time and place to particular people.

But it’s also saturated with symbolism and prophecy, which has led to a variety of methods of interpretation. Traditionally, interpreters have approached Revelation in four primary ways. After Christ’s resurrection, God would send His Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, and then the disciples would begin to truly understand (John John [16] And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [17] Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because.

There are five common ways that people often approach or think of God. They approach God with fear, fear that God is just waiting for an opportunity to punish them. Fear that if they mess up, He will send them to hell. Approaching God explores the ways in which phenomenology, metaphysics and theological enquiry can throw light upon each other.

This is a matter of great interest and importance to the future of philosophical theology and the philosophy of religion. What, if anything, has philosophical reflection about God to contribute to Christian theology. God exists in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew ).

God addresses Himself in parental terms, (i.e. Father). God is infinite (1 Timothy ), unchanging (Malachi ), and incomparable (2 Samuel ). Understanding God’s works is also an important part of understanding Him. God created the world (Genesis ) and He.

Understanding means obedience to God’s commandments. The Scriptures are not to be adapted to meet the prejudice and jealousy of men. They can be understood only by those who are humbly seeking for a knowledge of the truth that they may obey it.” Christ’s Object Lessons,   Reviewing a book about missions by Chris Wright makes me feel a little like a grown-up Pinocchio writing a critique of Geppetto’s toy-making skills.

Chris was very much involved in introducing me to the mission of God and to the God of mission when he served as a curate in my parents’ church when I was between the ages of 3 and 9. Human understanding of God’s books is based on man’s worldview (Entwistle, ).

While this may not necessarily be a new theory, a reading of this book has brought to mind a certain experience wherein I felt that theology alone was not able to answer the many questions that I had.

Biblical hermeneutics is the study of the principles of interpretation concerning the books of the Bible. It is part of the broader field of hermeneutics, which involves the study of principles of interpretation for all forms of communication, nonverbal and verbal.

To spread the truth of God's Word through capable expositors SPECIFIC AIMS To know basic facts pertaining to the history, principles, and practice of hermeneutics. To gain insight into issues in both general and special hermeneutics. To appreciate the significance of a proper hermeneutical approach to the Bible and to develop a lifelong attitude.

Like any book, the Bible is intended to be understood, and its author--the Holy Spirit--was able to say what He meant. The secret is in the attitude of heart with which one approaches it. "O how love I thy law!

it is my meditation all the day Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way" (Psalm). HMM.Reading the Word of God in the Presence of God. Redeeming Mathematics. Redeeming Philosophy. Redeeming Science.
