Godís mercy is greater than our weakness and it is always possible for Him to give us truth no matter how wrong our methods of Bible study might be. In fact, we must recognize that God is sovereign and dispenses His truth to whomever He wills. However, He has ordained rules for properly studying His Word and only to the extent that they shape and control our Bible study career can we expect to be faithful stewards of His Word, understanding and explaining the Bible accurately and clearly.
The First Rule is that we must personally search the scriptures.
The Second Rule is that the Bible explains itself.
The Third Rule is that we must think of and express what we learn from the Bible the same way God does.
Let us carefully examine these three rules before we begin to study the Bible.
