The English Bible, especially the King James edition, is inspiring and beautifully written. But to study it just as a piece of literature is pointless and really a waste of time. Much studying for its own sake is "a weariness of the flesh" (Eccl. 12:12).
The Bible was written with one purpose in mind. According to John 20:21, "But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name." Salvation is the BIG DEAL of the Bible.
As you study the Bible, you will learn much about God, yourself and the world in which you live. But you will also learn much about the central salvation story. I hope that the Bible study skills you acquire or improve through this website will lead you to a correct and clear understanding of that message.
As a guide to that end, the five discussions listed below describe the essence of the Bible's story of salvation.
Chapter 1 answers the important question, "How dead is a dead man?"
Chapter 2 answers the question, "Does God own a crystal ball?"
Chapter 3 answers the question, "Is salvation based upon a check or cash?"
Chapter 4 answers the question, "Can a man say 'No!' to God?"
Chapter 5 answers the question, "Is the way to Heaven a one-way street?"
