Study Like a Pro

“Why don’t I have the insight into the Bible that he has?” “Where did she learn to interpret the Bible so well?” We’ve all asked ourselves these questions. This collection of tried and true articles from Bible Study Magazine, written by experts, walks you through Bible difficulties and teaches you how to study like a pro.

Top Highlights

“Torah, that is, religious instruction.’ The narrative of the Israelites’ escape from Egypt becomes memorialized by its observance. In this way, the exodus story functions as a master story of redemption in which God sets apart a people for himself.” (source)

“Leviticus confronts us with the cost of our sin against God and others.” (source)

“In this passage, the Servant becomes the bridge between sinners and God. He unselfishly and undeservedly bears our iniquities. Like the symbolic goat from Leviticus 16:22, the Servant bears sin itself so we can once again have relationship with God.” (source)

“Even a cursory reading reveals that Leviticus is all about how God’s people can be made right before him. People are sinful; we are guilty for our wrongful actions against God and others. Thus, we cannot have a complete relationship with Him—that gap must be bridged.” (source)

“This resource notes that a key aspect of preparing for the battle with Jericho is spiritual rather than military. The people are spiritually prepared through circumcision and through the remembrance of Passover (Josh 5:2–9, 10–12).” (source)
