Guide to Reading the Bible

Faith, Mercy, and Grace

Probably the best way to learn more about Jesus and the good news regarding him, whether you are a believer or not, is to read the Bible, particularly the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and then the rest of the New Testament. It is in this way that you are more apt to receive a better and more true understanding of the larger Gospel picture as opposed to hearing a few sets of verses where you don't the context from which they were taken.

Reading large sections of the Bible, especially the New Testament, is highly recommended to help ensure that you get a fuller and more complete insight and understanding of the freedom, mercy, and grace available to you in their full context.

You may find that in many cases you may find teachings which don't quite fit into what you may have been exposed to before. Sometimes this is because you have always concentrated on favorite sections or because you are not exposed to those teachings when taught by others.

That is why it is important to read more.

Just because it may be new to you does not make it wrong.

Likewise, what is new to you is not necessarily right.

Read, read, read.

Context, context, context.

Considering that so much has changed between the old and the new testament, I prefer to concentrate on reading the books of the New Testament since I can get a better understanding of the miracles of faith, mercy, and grace available through Jesus.
