The Bible is presented to us very much like a weapon, and we should get to know how to use it.
In Hebrews 4:12 The Bible describes itself as one:
"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart."
A weapon is made up of many parts, in this series we will be tackling the various parts of the bible as it's essential components.
- Narrative, Law, Wisdom and Poetry form the structure of the first set, the Old Testament.
- The four Gospels, Acts, The Letters and Revelation form the structure of the second set, the New Testament.
We'll be delving deep into the context and structure of these diverse types of writing. We'll be getting good at handling our Bibles safely, confidently and accurately; from a very hands-on and accessible approach to hermeneutics.
