The Key to Bible Study

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” 2 Tim. 3:16- 17

******************************

“The more you read the Bible, and the more you meditate
upon it, the more you will be astonished with it.

He who is but a casual reader of the Bible, does not know
the height, the depth, the length and breadth of the mighty
meanings contained in its pages.

There are certain times when I discover a new vein of
thought, and I put my hand to my head and say in
astonishment, “Oh, it is wonderful I never saw this before in
the Scriptures.”

You will find the Scriptures enlarge as you enter them; the
more you study them the less you will appear to know of
them, for they widen out as we approach them.

Especially will you find this the case with the ‘typical’ parts of
God’s Word. Most of the historical books were intended to
be types either of dispensations, or experiences, or offices of
Jesus Christ.

Study the Bible with this as a key.
One of the most interesting points of the Scriptures
is their constant tendency to display Christ.”

Spurgeon
