RIGHTLY DIVIDED: HOW TO READ THE BIBLE

“Do you read the Bible literally?” Many people ask that question as a litmus test for one’s view on the authority of God’s word. However, what we often miss is that to read the Bible “literally” means to read it in context, according to the intent of the biblical authors, as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit. In order to read the Bible in context, we need to understand not only the occasion of each text, but the types of literature that God’s truth is being communicated in. During this course, we will take the time to work through the variety of genres that the Bible uses to communicate the good news about who God is and what He has done, with the goal of learning to interpret the Scriptures well and growing in love for its divine Author.
