Understanding the Word is the basis for Christianity. The Bible is the go-to and reference for understanding God, Jesus, and Christianity as a whole. By learning from different perspectives we are able to grow from each other and with each other in Christ. To me, Bible study helps me put my experiences into the context of Christianity.
The Bible isn’t a light read, seeing as it has 66 books, 1189 chapters, 23145 verses, and countless amounts of wisdom. It takes time to get through the entire Bible guidance is often needed. I not only follow a Bible reading plan that get’s me through the entire Bible in a year at a comfortable pace, but I also read devotionals, topical non-fiction, commentaries, and more.
I like to share my perspective of the Bible as I go through it and apply it to my life. It may not be everyone’s view of the Bible, but it is mine and what I have learned through peers, pastors, and others. You can follow along with my continuous Bible study on a variety of topics and plans right here.
