How We Read the Bible

“How We Read the Bible”

Do you ever wonder how Christians can come out on both sides of an issue when they read the same Bible? There are a variety of ways of interpreting and understanding the Bible and our class will look at some of these ways. We will discuss five different models of Bible understanding and apply them to various passages from scripture.

We are getting our information from this denominational web site: (The list of the five positions is on p. 21)

Here are the scriptures we will be using. We will approach them each class from a different perpsective.

Genesis 1 & 2; Exodus 20:1-17; Leviticus 12 & 18; Joshua 6:21, 8:26; 11:20; Isaiah 40; Ezekiel 1 & 37. Matthew 5:17-48; Luke 1:26-38; John 6:1-14, 16-21; Romans 1:26-32; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 7 & 21:1-4.
