View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Like a two-edged sword, Scripture can help or harm. We believe that all Scripture is breathed by God-given to help us find our way (2 Tim. 3:16-17; Ps. 119:105). Still, the Word of God can be used to help or to harm. At times, God's children have used the Scriptures in bad ways, accidentally. At other times, God's enemies have twisted the Scriptures to deceive people (2 Pet. 3:16). Satan quoted Scripture, trying to lead Jesus astray (Mt. 4). Handling the Scripture rightly requires study (2 Tim. 2:15). In this course we will guide you to answer questions such as these: Why do we need principles to guide us as we interpret Scripture? What principles did Ezra, Nehemiah, Jesus, and the apostles use to interpret Scripture? What happens if we quote God's words, but miss His meaning? How many meanings does a verse in the Bible have? Are the customs of the Bible inspired? What are circles of context, and how can they help us? Why should we ask Luke what he means, before we ask Paul what Luke means? Why is it important to identify the subject of a verse? Why have many misunderstood the words Jesus spoke about His body? Is it right for believers to claim all the promises of the old covenant? Are biblical truths for all believers, in all places, at all times? How does the Holy Spirit help believers interpret and apply Scripture?
