'Excellent, practical, and accurate. It leads students from the most fundamental building blocks of interpretation (including skills that most beginning students lack) through all the essential processes.' ---Craig S. Keener, Professor of New Testament, Eastern Seminary Just as a rock climber's handhold enables him to master the mountain, a firm grasp on God's Word empowers us to traverse the challenging, risky slopes of life. This workbook is designed for use with the textbook Grasping God's Word. While the textbook shows you the principles and tools of interpretation, the workbook lets you try them out by applying them to specific genres and contexts. Together, these books will help you get a grip on the solid rock of Scripture---how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it. Features include: * Proven in classrooms across the country * Emphasis on real-life application * Supplemented by a website for professors providing extensive teaching materials * Updates corresponding to the second edition of the textbook, including new exercises Grasping God's Word progresses through the following five sections: 1. How to Read the Book---Basic Tools 2. Contexts---Now and Then 3. Meaning and Application 4. The Interpretive Journey---New Testament 5. The Interpretive Journey---Old Testament

Grasping God's Word Workbook---Second Edition We want to hear from you. Please send your comments about this book to us in care of zreview@zondervan.com. Thank you. Part 1 How to Read the Book---Basic Tools The Interpretive Journey Assignment 1-1 Describe the four steps of the Interpretive Journey. Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Step 4: Assignment 1-2 What are the guidelines for developing theological principles? a. b. c. d. e. Assignment 1-3 What are the differences that determine the width of the river to cross? Assignment 2-1 Find a minimum of thirty observations in Acts 1:8. List them below. Avoid making interpretations or applications at this stage. That is, stay with observations. For example, an observation would be to note that the passage starts off with the conjunction 'but.' This conjunction connects the sentence to the one above it in a contrasting way. If, however, you were to note that the Holy Spirit empowers us for evangelism, that observation falls into the category of interpretation or application. Do not enter into the interpretation or application phase yet. Limit all thirty of your observations to the details and not to the interpretation of the details.Work hard! Dig deep! Read and reread the passage. Do not quit until you have found at least thirty observations. Try to find more than thirty. Happy hunting! But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. Extra 1. Extra 2. Extra 3. Extra 4. Use another sheet of paper if you have more. Assignment 2-2 Make as many observations as you can on 1 John 1:5--7. Follow the format presented for Romans 12:1--2 in Chapter 2 of the textbook. Dig deep! Think hard. Spend time on this.Mark dozens and dozens of observations. Read and reread! Look again! Observe! Observe! Observe! 5This is the message that we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
