How to Study the Bible

Have you ever wondered how to study the Bible? It can often feel like you are trying to understand a story from a completely different culture in a completely different language in a completely different era. That’s because you are! Join us as we dive deeper into God’s Word and learn how to read and interpret it faithfully. Using a blend of theological scholarship, humor, and teaching devices, we will look at how to study books as a whole, analyze characters and themes, and even dig into some of the more bizarre and provocative stories.
