Friends,John Piper demonstrates the way to study your Bible–every jot and tittle of it!
Teachers will certainly appreciate this, but every Bible student will also. Piper (a master teacher), demonstrates how important the context is to interpreting the word of God. I’ve always believed connecting the dots right there in your Bible is important, because our memory is poor.
Nonetheless, I disagree with his interpretation of Rom. 7 (that very tuff passage). I don’t believe he went back far enough in the context to interpret it accurately. He did the best job I’ve ever heard or read on that passage from that point of view–I learned some things.
However, my series of books on Romans 5-8 (OVERKILL) will set the record straight once and for all:-) in fact, if you study my soon to be published book on Romans 6 you will know how to understand Romans 7.
Take it from this video and connect the dots when you study your Bible and it will transform from a collection of appetizers to a banquet table.
Psa 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
