Guidance for Daily Bible Study
  • Use a fitting translation. The goal of a
    translation to faithfully render the Hebrew and
    Greek into fluent English . Suggested
    translations The New International Version The
    New American Standard. The regular use of one
    specific Bible is helpful for becoming familiar
    with where certain passages are found.

Nehemiah 88 They read from the Book of the Law
of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so
that the people could understand what was being
read.
(2) Set aside a definite time every day for study
and prayer. Make it part of your daily schedule
and stick to it.
Daniel 610 Now when Daniel learned that the
decree had been published, he went home to his
upstairs room where the windows opened toward
Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his
knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just
as he had done before.
(3) Begin with prayer for the Holy Spirit and
enlightenment. Concentrate as you study and ask
that He give blessing through your study.
Psalm 11918 Open my eyes that I may see
wonderful things in your law.
14
Guidance for Daily Bible Study
(4) Consciously focus on each word and seek
understanding. Ask questions like What does it
say? What does it tell me about myself? What does
it tell me about my Lord? What will it lead me to
do? What am I to believe? What am I to become?
Also of great value is to read with Imagination,
picturing the events in your mind, putting
yourself in the text.
Acts 1711,12 Now the Bereans were of more noble
character than the Thessalonians, for they
received the message with great eagerness and
examined the Scriptures every day to see if what
Paul said was true. Many of the Jews believed, as
did also a number of prominent Greek women and
many Greek men.
2 Timothy 215 Do your best to present yourself
to God as one approved, a workman who does not
need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the
word of truth.
Psalm 11-3 Blessed is the man who does not walk
in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way
of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his
delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law
he meditates day and night. He is like a tree
planted by streams of water, which yields its
fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
(5) Meditate on Gods Word throughout the day.
Really think about it and how it relates to you
and how it may be applied to daily life. Of value
in this is keeping a special notebook or pad to
record key verses or truths gained. (Using a pen
or pencil with your study also reinforces your
retention of the truths! Also, dont hesitate to
mark key verses right in your Bible.)
(6) In general study the Bible by books. Work
through a book and see the general outline,
purpose, progression, etc. Introductory data from
Bible handbooks can be helpful.(Alternative types
of studyGeneral Overview, Topical, Great
Chapters, or with a Devotional Book.) Suggested
starting points Luke, Acts, Romans, Genesis,
Philippians, Psalms, Proverbs, 1 Peter, John….
Proverbs 620-22 My son, keep your fathers
commands and do not forsake your mothers
teaching. Bind them upon your heart forever
fasten them around your neck. When you walk,
they will guide you when you sleep, they will
watch over you when you awake, they will speak
to you.
15
Principles of Bible Interpretation
  • Consider the context and the circumstances of
    each passage.
  • Most False teachings stem from taking a passage
    out of context. Look carefully at the verses
    before and after each passage as well as the
    purpose and aim of the book it is in. Note the
    speaker, the ones spoken to, the reason for the
    statement, etc.

16
Principles of Bible Interpretation
(2) Take the Bible literally unless the Bible
itself says otherwise. Take the words in their
simple literal sense and dont go off seeking
fanciful, figurative or hidden meanings. If the
words are used in figurative or symbolical ways,
the context or parallel passages will indicate
it. Common sense will also make us aware of
ordinary idioms (Metaphors, similes, hyperboles,
etc.) as well as figures of speech common to all
languages.
17
Principles of Bible Interpretation
(3) Consider parallel passages or cross
references. Let Scripture do the interpreting of
Scripture. Less clear sections will be made more
clear by other Bible sections dealing with the
same subjects. This further helps to safeguard
Bible truths for us.
Romans 1617 I urge you, brothers, to watch out
for those who cause divisions and put obstacles
in your way that are contrary to the teaching you
have learned. Keep away from them.
Galatians 18,9 But even if we or an angel from
heaven should preach a gospel other than the one
we preached to you, let him be eternally
condemned! As we have already said, so now I say
again If anybody is preaching to you a gospel
other than what you accepted, let him be
eternally condemned!
(4) Consider all interpretations in the light of
clear, chief truths. No correct interpretation
will contradict the often-stated and clear
doctrines of the Bible (like mans sinfulness,
salvation by grace through faith, the deity of
Jesus Christ, etc.) Further study will make the
true meaning clear if it is not seen right away.
Parallel passages will again be of great value.
