Hermeneutics: How To Study The Bible

Hermeneutics, How to Study the Bible

It is vitally important that every person study the Bible properly in order to understand the truths it reveals. A knowledge and understanding of those truths, along with obedience to them, are essential to the salvation of one's soul (John 8:32). This can only be accomplished by using correct study methods in reference to Scripture.

Hermeneutics: How to Study the Bible (PDF file size 394k) is presented with that in mind. It is hoped that each student will develop or reinforce proper study methods and habits in their investigation of God's word.

This study is neither original nor exhaustive. Rather, it is a summary from a number of sources, a compilation of the best and most necessary concepts from each source.

It is our prayer that each of us will properly understand God's word and accurately apply it to our lives so that we will derive the full benefits of its blessings.
