14 Rules for Bible Study
- Begin with Scriptures that are easy to understand.
- Let the Bible interpret and prove the Bible. Don't look for what you want to prove; look for what the Bible actually proves.
- Understand the context--the verses before and after, the chapters before and after. Does your understanding of a particular verse harmonize with the rest of the Bible?
- Understand the original language, Hebrew or Greek. Never try to establish dogmatic doctrine or teachings by using Strong's Concordance. It can be helpful at times, but it is extremely limited.
- Ask, what does the Scripture clearly say?
- Ask, what does the Scripture not say?
- Ask, to whom was the book written?
- Ask, who wrote it?
- Ask, who said it?
- Understand the time frame in history when the book was written.
- Don't bring your own personal assumptions and preconceived notions into your understanding or conclusions.
- Base your study on Scriptural knowledge that you already understand. What do you know up to this point in time?
- Do not form conclusions based on partial facts or insufficient information, or the opinions and speculations of others.
- Personal opinions or convictions, regardless of how strong they may be, don't necessarily count. Scripture must be your standard and guide.
