Learn to Study the Bible in Context

This site is dedicated to teaching everyone how to study the Bible.  It is a simple process used for thousands of years.  This site is designed to teach normal everyday people, even children how to use simple methods to study the Bible in the context it was written. Many of the studies and stories you’ll find on this site go out of the way to explain step by step procedures you can use anywhere in the Bible. Each method has been around for years, but often shrouded in complicated explanations with names few people would pronounce in public. Bible Study was never intended to impress the general public. Bible Study is a personal experience between the serious student of scripture (disciple) and the Holy Spirit.

The column on the left contains a list of studies and a pull down menu with studies filed in categories.

Leave a message if you have any comments, requests, ideas, or studies you want to share. And please share this site whenever you can.

There is a list of books with a vast collection of stories and studies using the same procedures you can purchase. Printed books are black and white. eBooks contain the same stories and studies, but are offered in full color. eBooks can be used to copy and paste studies and portions of studies. They can be printed and shared, as long as proper credit is given for the book the information was copied from.

    I don’t think the Bible is this black and white in the way we interpret/understand it.
    A good couple of questions to ask when trying to understand what a Bible writer is getting at is: “What was he/she trying to get across here?” “What might have the original listeners/audience have understood this as?”

    The Bible is not like a magic encyclopedia in which we can simply try to mix and match texts/words all across it. The Bible was written in at least 3 different languages and across many centuries. Thus it would be foolish to assume that the identical symbolism for ‘serpent’ would be understood exactly the same when Moses wrote Genesis; then thousands of years later when a writer during the period of Israel as a kingdom (likely David); and then again thousands of years later when Jesus lived. Words don’t have meanings; they get meanings based upon how they are used/understood at individual times.

    I suggest you take a more holistic approach to the Bible and particularly ask yourself these questions when studying.

    • The Bible was written in Herbrew and Jesus talks from the old scriptual context which is in Herbrew…. Jesus talks of parables, allot. So it would be wise in my opinion to idenify allot of text in the Bible as symbolism.

      • adventbiblestudy said

        The majority of symbols are identified in the chapter they are recorded in. When you rely on the chapter, you know the interpretation is according to the proper context.

    • Bob Jones said

      I’m sorry, but Kris presumes that God is not the author behind the authors and limits the Bible to the capabilities of mere men. In fact, the Bible is very much like a giant crossword puzzle where the symbols lock into each other and validate each other. Such a thing would be impossible for mere men to accomplish because it was written across centuries. It is actually even more amazing than that. Each OT verse participates in painting a detailed picture of Christ, a topic of which the human authors knew nothing. The ‘method’ used here is just the start in unpacking the hidden prophesies of Christ which are the very fingerprints of God upon his Word.

    Thank you for your comments. The Spirit works upon our hearts in more ways than we could ever imagine. I agree with the fact that we need “to understand what a Bible writer is getting at”. You will see that above in “Step Number THREE Write out the physical aspects of the text in your own words.” I repeat that fact in many of my studies. When studying the Bible it is important that the physical agree with the spiritual. I see too many studies that do not follow this rule. But I will not get into it without an example.

    I would need a better example to understand the point you are trying to make using the word serpent. As far as I can see, the word serpent is used the same through out the Bible. I would also disagree with your statement, “Words don’t have meanings; they get meanings based upon how they are used/understood at individual times.” To a point you are correct. Languages do tent to branch out and create their own paths. But if we follow the Bible we see that God created all the languages, not man. KJV Genesis 11:7. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. And God did write the Bible.

    I will agree with you, “ask yourself these questions when studying”. If we do not ask questions we can never learn. This is as true in the classroom, the home environment and when we go to God for knowledge and understanding.

    Send me a link to your site I would like to see some of your studies.

    KJV John 21:25
    25. And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

    Please contact me privately in my email. I would like to know if you are involved in full time ministry, which I presume you are. However, there are some things that the Holy Spirit is leading me on and I’d like to find out if you would like to be part them; Lord willing. Thank you brother, have a blessed day.

    • adventbiblestudy said

      Yes I am involved with a number of personal ministries, local and on the Internet. So much work, so little time.

    Job 33:14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
    Job 40:5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.
    Psalms 62:11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
    Ecclus 41:23 Or of iterating and speaking again that which thou hast heard; and of revealing of secrets.
    Ecclus 42:25-25 All things are double one against another: and he hath made nothing imperfect. One thing establisheth the good or another: and who shall be filled with beholding his glory?

      We have found a lot of people can preach from the Bible, but few are able to teach people how to study on their own. It’s like the Bible says, preaching and teaching are different gifts. I prefer to teach.

      • Sandi Allen said

        Holy men of old was oved by the holy ghost God spirit and today there is a ministry preaching the truth of the word of God as the spirit of God move on them in the old testament it speaks of this ministry as well ofPaul talked about it as well, the word of God in the new testaments says He, God gave gifts unto men Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Pastors, and Evangelist, for the perfecting of the Saints. It’s important that one has a ministry that will perfect them as it says in the book of Revelation, to him that overcome shall inherit eternal life, it’s something that Jesus gave the early church a way a truth to Serve Him, and he gave it also to the laterrain church ministry as well. Jesus has a way and a truth to Serve Him and worship him so that we may be found worthy to escape the things coming upon this earthbas Luke 21:36.

        The main focus of this site is not to tell people what they are doing wrong, or what to do. I’m sure God can help with that. The purpose of this site is to help people communicate with God through His Word, so they have a reliable learning tool
