The Power of Naming the Bible Study Practices You Do Naturally

labeling your bible

Most of the skills involved in good Bible reading are things people do intuitively anyway. So why bother reading a Bible study magazine or purchasing Bible software—plus all the resources (commentaries, books, hermeneutics manuals) that make that software worth having?

Because, ironically, we are blind to things we do intuitively. It’s by acknowledging, describing, and finally naming our reading practices that we grow in our ability to read the Bible (or any book).

How Obedience to God’s Law Enables Us to Love Others

love and law

To some, the concepts of love and law contradict one another. While love conjures images of warmth and family, law conjures images of coldness and isolation. In our contemporary culture, loving others and believing in objective moral standards are often seen as mutually exclusive commitments. But love and law are not opposed to one another. In fact, according to the Bible, love and law fit together by faith.

Inline Search Helps When Memory Fades

forget a bible verse

During a recent study, I wanted to go to the verse where the biblical writer admonishes the lazy person to observe the actions of the ant. For the life of me, however, I could not remember where the verse was located.

I also didn’t want to interrupt the flow of my study to build an elaborate search so I turned to the Logos 6 feature called Inline Searching. Here’s how I leveraged the tool to quickly locate a verse:

And They Were Exceedingly Astonished

Stop and be astonished, if you can, at a statement from Jesus in Mark 10 that certainly astonished his disciples: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven” (Mark 10:25).

For sure, there are core ideas in the Bible that are straightforward and quite within the grasp of most readers to understand. But to be honest, most of the Bible isn’t like that. You can’t just immediately understand the content of its pages after one read. A number of passages take sustained attention for days, weeks, months, and perhaps years. And in some cases, even scholars can’t agree, which is why the meaning of certain passages is still being debated thousands of years after they were written.

Why is Bible interpretation so problematic? Why didn’t God make his Word easy to understand in every passage?
