With so many commentaries today trying to sway people to their own interpretation of the Bible, it's hard to find something that's 100 percent truth
Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) July 10, 2007
Life demands our being able to interpret: body language, movies, songs and especially the language of the Bible. The problem is, with millions of Christians in America and around the globe basing their lives on Christ's words and His work, it's very easy for preachers and teachers to "interpret" the Bible according to their personal opinion.
"With so many commentaries today trying to sway people to their own interpretation of the Bible, it's hard to find something that's 100 percent truth," said Gail Knox, author and 16-year Bible study teacher. Knox has introduced a new line of Bible studies uses scripture to interpret scripture, resulting in a more accurate interpretation.
These Easy-to-Learn Inductive Bible studies from Word Among Us Ministries consist of student workbooks and a Leader's Guide that are excellent study material for Sunday School classes and small group Bible study. The Easy-to-Learn series currently includes studies for Jonah, Titus, 1 John, Jude and Revelation.
"In regards to Bible studies, so many times you'll see people presenting their opinion as gospel," said Knox. "When that happens, and people later realize the error of man's opinion, it destroys credibility and there's a lot of disillusionment to deal with. When you're studying the Bible, it's important to take things in context."
Small group leaders looking for a different way of teaching God's Word will find that these guides can help them overcome many challenges of leading a small group Bible study. Each guide provides specific questions relating to everyday living for each of the books in the program. The questions are designed to provoke thought and discussion among the group.
"It's important for small group leaders to be able to interpret scripture with scripture," Knox said. "Commentary is written by man, as opposed to the Bible, which is written by the Holy Spirit. If one uses commentary to interpret scripture, it is merely another person's opinion and not God's absolute truth."
A lot of misconception surrounds the Bible and its interpretation. The director of the Alabama Securities Commission said that he saw more money stolen in the name of God than any other way. With Easy-to-Learn Inductive Bible studies, it's possible to teach Truth without twisting God's Word.
