Milford, OH (PRWEB) December 2, 2009 –-
The United Church of God has a focus that drives its mission, which is to proclaim to the world the often misunderstood and even misrepresented teachings of Jesus Christ. The goal of the Church is not only to preach to all nations of the world the good news of the coming of the Kingdom of God, but also to prepare those that hear and heed the word for that Kingdom. This is only possible if and when those people understand the bible scripture for its true meaning. That is why the Christian Church now provides free online bible study courses at ucg.org for all who are interested.
One of the seemingly great mysteries associated with the gospel is simply how to study and read bible scripture. Many people are confused by the style of writing and unusual expressions used in the Bible. To help, the United Church of God has an area on its site that offers ways to get started reading bible scripture; ways to not only simplify the process, but to also insure that the teachings provide inspiration and encouragement.
One method suggested by the Christian Church is to read bible scripture book by book. This method provides a way to fix the context of the verses clearly in one’s mind. Another method of reading bible scripture suggested is doing word studies, which are designed to find out what unfamiliar expressions mean – or in some cases, find out the meaning that is being given to a familiar word or term. This sort of study will include an exploration of numerous verses that contain the word or phrase.
The Church recommends that bible scripture not only be read to understand biblical truths, but also for inspiration and encouragement; particular sections of the Bible that are inspirational include the book of Psalms and chapters 5 through 7 of Matthew. When reading to learn about biblical truths, the Church suggests studying specific topics of interests. In most cases, this will mean reading numerous
teachings that relate to any given topic.
