Help Me Understand the Bible

The Bible was not written for the English-speaking reader. It was written in the Middle East in a radically different culture hundreds of years ago. They did not have the logic that we use so easily – Greek logic. It was written before science began.

If we read the Bible trying to force it into our science and logic, we will often be disappointed.

Instead, we need to learn to read it devotionally, with our right brain. The word pictures are beautiful and effective. The narratives tell of God reaching into our history to touch lives. We need to allow our spirits to be blessed by the Creator who is reaching out to us through his Son, Jesus, and his Holy Spirit.
