The Bible – Bible Studies

The Bible “Why we need to attend Bible Studies.”

“The Holy Bible” has been the standard for Christian practices for centuries, yet believers still disagree on how Scripture should be interpreted and applied. When readers fully understand the significant changes in Biblical studies and the new archeological findings, we may consider re-evaluating and refocusing our view of life in ancient Israel, which is a significant factor as the behavior and customs change from generation to generation they may still be practicing similar manners and customs as studies progress.

As discoveries are in progress, the method of comparing the ancient Near East and modern society will be a valuable addition in the process of moving from Scriptures to theology- as the Scripture says: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Everyone who asks will receive, and the one who seeks will find, and to the one who knocks, it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)

The beauty of bible studies is that we can connect, update, ask questions, and talk about the significant events of the past and compare them to today’s lifestyle. In addition, we can study why it was written, who the original audiences were, when it happened, where it happened, and what the situation was at that time. More than 2000 years ago, when known persons such as but not limited to Peter and Paul and the unknown author of the book to the Hebrews wrote passages in the Bible.
