Bible Study Help

Postby destros_elite on Fri Jan 24, 2014 10:27 am

I have started something new with my Bible study this year. I am reading six or seven chapters of a book (or the entire book if less than seven chapters) each day for a month. Galatians was the book I chose to read for January. Let me tell you, this method has opened the Word up! This method is not new and I have read about it in the past, but it is so effective. I have probably read Galatians 20 times or so in the past, but doing it this way...I missed so much! Has anyone else ever done this? I will be tackling Titus in February.

That sounds like a great idea. I've seen a lot of people fail to grasp the overarching narrative of books of the bible and even the bible as a whole because they tackle the text in a topical manner, skipping from book to book cherry picking passages that cover the topic that is being covered.

I think that's perfectly fine if you are also reading entire books at a time. The method you are using is a good one, so keep it up!
