This is a Bible study site.
This site is designed for a word by word study of the Bible, for it is not by talking or writing ABOUT the Bible, with a few verses thrown in as proof for our assertions, that we can hear what God has to say to us.
It is only by reading (hopefully, aloud, as it was intended to be), and listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit, that we can find out what God wants us to know today by His words. Close attention to what is written (and heard) will enable us to see connections between other parts of Scripture under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, which will in turn throw more light on the original ones we were reading. Thus the Bible through the Spirit can be its own interpreter to us and we will not need or desire other helps.
[Jesus said to His disciples] I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come. He shall glorify [or illuminate] Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it to you.
I intend to start with the Letter to the Christians in Rome written by the apostle Paul before he was able to travel to that city.
If you are with me in this endeavour, then I welcome your comments as you read. Just jot your thoughts down and Email them to me. I will place an Email connection at the bottom of each page to make it easy. Don't worry about perfect English or even care too much about choosing your words - I would like to hear your first thoughts on what God has just said to you!
I promise not to bother you with invitations to join my church, or send you any extra information without your specific request, so ask questions if you want to know anything. I want to hear what you have heard, and share with you what I have learnt, if you are interested. Like Paul, I pray that "I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me."
Behind the text I am in the process of placing notes from a series of thoughts given by one E. J. Waggoner a long time ago, but they are only there as helps to show what can be accomplished by this method. There is also a "preface" and an "important point", but you can bypass them if you wish, for they are only my thoughts.
Christian regards to you,
