Bible Study with Deborah
"Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding." Proverbs 4:7 NKJV
Welcome to KHOF School of Understanding
Welcome to KHOF School of Understanding. This is a Bible study programme where we will study the books of the Bible, verse by verse. In this programme we will receive a deeper understanding of the Word of God through illumination, revelation, inspiration, and interpretation. These four words are our main objectives.
Our scriptural foundation is found in Luke 24:45, “Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.”
About our School of Understanding
1. The overall purpose of the Bible should first be considered. That is the reason we at KHOF School of Understanding teach all of it verse by verse omitting nothing —because we believe you need to have it all before you can come to any dogmatic conclusion concerning any particular verse of Scripture. It is important to take into consideration all verses that are related to that subject.
2. To whom the Scripture is addressed should be considered next. For instance, in the Old Testament God said to Joshua, “Arise, go over this Jordan” (Joshua 1:2). So if you and I should travel to the river Jordan and cross it that wouldn’t mean that we have now fulfilled that Scripture. We can’t say, “At last we have obeyed the Lord and have crossed over Jordan.” No. When we read that verse we know that the Lord is talking to Joshua—but I believe there is a tremendous lesson there for us too. All Scripture is not to me, but all Scripture is for me. That is a good rule to keep in mind. We will learn more of this here at KHOF School of Understanding.
3. The immediate context before and after a particular Scripture is always observed. What is the passage talking about? What is the context of what is being said? What other passages of Scripture deal with the same thing? So as we study the Bible verse by verse, we will cover this too.
4. Discover what the original version says. I have found that because we are so divided doctrinally, every group that attempts to translate the Bible just naturally injects into the translation their particular viewpoint. Therefore, if the liberal is going to do the translating, you may get a taste of liberalism. If the fundamentalist is going to do the translating, you’ll get his bias in certain places. However, the men who did the original English translations were men who believed that the Bible was the Word of God and handled it accordingly.
5. Interpret the Bible literally. The late Dr. David Cooper stated it well: “When the plain sense of Scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths, indicate clearly otherwise.
