How to Interpret the Bible
It's one thing to know what the Bible says, it's another task to know what the Bible means.
God wrote his Word, the Bible, in a way that you can understand, because he wants you to know him.
Understanding any book well requires careful thinking, and the same is true with understanding the Bible.
2 Peter 1:20 ESV
Knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation.
