“For I know the thoughts that I
think toward you, says the LORD,
thoughts of peace and not of evil, to
give you a future and a hope. Then
you will call upon Me and go and
pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
And you will seek Me and find Me,
when you search for Me with all
your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13

“GRASPING GOD’S WORD”
Learning how to correctly interpret scripture.  Just as a rock climber’s handhold enables him
to master the mountain, a firm grasp on God’s Word empowers us to tackle the challenging,
risky slopes of life. This overview helps serious readers get a grip on the solid rock of
Scripture—how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it. Covers five steps of the
Interpretive Journey:  1) Grasp the text in their town. What did the text mean to the biblical
audience?  2) Measure the width of the river to cross. What are the differences between the
biblical audience and us?  3) Cross the principlizing bridge. What is the theological principle in
this text?  4) Cross into the rest of Scripture. Does the rest of the canon’s teaching modify or
qualify this principle?  5) Grasp the text in our town. How should Christians today apply the
theological principle in their lives?  Led by Pastor Rich.
Thursday Evenings at 7:00pm-8:30pm in the fellowship hall.
