There were four overarching comments I heard from people in our church after studying theology together for eight weeks.
How do you imagine the average Old Testament believer in God carried around all the scrolls needed to learn God’s commands? For them, their knowledge of the Word came from hearing—from listening to it read aloud in small group settings. That’s why Bible listening can deepen your understanding of God’s word.
It’s tempting when a believer comes to you, saying, “Pastor, I have a hard time reading the Bible regularly. Can you give me a devotional plan?” Resist this temptation! There is a better way.
“In the Word Study Series, The Bible Project explores ‘The Shema,’ an ancient biblical prayer. These videos are great for personal study, small groups or as sermon illustration components.”
Before we can apply the Bible, we must understand it.
