“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”
Starting on July 9th.  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.
