To venable (verb): To randomly muse upon this and that.

Bible Overview.

As we study scripture it is good to have an overarching frame within which to develop our understanding. So easily we get mired in the detail of books and passages and lose any sense of a coherence to the biblical message.

I want to suggest to you a certain frame which reasonably gives a means of understanding the whole of Scripture. When we understand the Bible to be about the following then we have a handle on helpfully and healthily studying scripture:

  • God’s people
  • In God’s place
  • To be for His glory (and that means obedience, worship and service)

If you start thinking about scripture within that frame, I am convinced your appreciation of the Lord and His ways and your involvement therein will start to progress.
