HOPEannFAITH Recommended Reading: Bible Verses Need Context « Janet Pope

I just took a “how to study the bible course”; it was actually a consolidated, quick Hermeneutics class.

hermeneutics
1. The branch of knowledge that deals with interpretation, especially of the bible or literary texts.
How we “read” and “study the bible is vital. When we simply like a verse and decide to memorize it, often times, because it is out of context we lose much of what God is saying to us.

 

And then … we apply it wrong and when things do not work out the way that we “think” God is saying it will, we get angry at God; when all the time we were mistaken as to the meaning.

This article explains this in easy layman’s terms. Because most of us are studying God’s word to apply it to our lives, not for college purposes!

A HOPEannFAITH recommended reading! Enjoy:

Author: Hopeannfaith

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
