Reading the Bible Yourself – Part 10David Tavender
It has been the intention of this study to display the importance of rightly dividing the Scriptures. Together with closely observing the context of a verse (who, what, when, etc.), right division is essential if we are to understand the Bible’s message.
In summary, right division is the key to making sense out of the Bible. Problems arise when we take the promises and conditions of other dispensations and try to apply these to ourselves. Let us take to heart the words of Paul:
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles (rightly divides, KJV) the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
