      For Edwards, the supernatural reading of the Bible is rooted ultimately in the supernatural nature of the Bible. Sweeney sums up Edwards’s view: “[The Bible] is the written word of God, from the eternal word of God, and hangs together on the work of the incarnate Word of God” (98).   When we read, "In the beginning was the Word" in John's Gospel, we should immediately think of another Bible text that begins with the same introductory phrase. Genesis says, "In the beginning.

      The Word is alive! Luther interpreted Scripture as something that was applicable to him that day, at that time. The Roman Catholic Church wasn’t obeying God’s Word, and the Bible told Luther so. As a captive to God’s Word, Luther was led by the Holy Spirit to understand important truths about theology and the Christian life.   In this step, we'll see what the text looks like under a microscope, as we begin breaking it down. Using a Bible dictionary, look up the meaning of the word living in the original language. It is the Greek word 'Zaõ' meaning, "not only living but causing to live, vivifying, quickening."

      We should read the Word with persuasiveness: “with a firm persuasion that they are the very Word of God, and that he only can enable us to understand them.” We turn to the Scripture because, as Gregory the Great (AD –) said, we “learn the heart of God in the words of God” (Letter to Theodorus).Author: Daniel Hyde.   The Truthfulness of Scripture. When John Piper sat down to write Reading the Bible Supernaturally: Seeing and Savoring the Glory of God in Scripture, he says, “another book pushed its way into his mind and demanded to be written first.”. So, he delayed its writing, and instead focused on A Peculiar Glory: How the Christian Scriptures Reveal Their Complete .

The heart behind Read Scripture is that everyone would read the Bible for themselves and discover the truth and beauty of God's Word. Scripture is God's gift to us, lighting up our paths and drawing us into relationship with Him.

Read Scripture is more of an invitation and a commitment than it is a product. The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Proverbs “For this command is a lamp, this teaching is a light, and correction and instruction are the way to life.” Job “Accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart.”.

The Bible is clear about the importance of God's Word (2 Timothy ; 2 Peter ), but what about other books. Should we read other books, or just the Bible. First, it is clear that other books are important to help people learn to read.

The Bible while being the most significant and important book of all time it can be a difficult read sometimes with all the stories and translations (depending on what version you're reading).

Wangerin's Book of God takes the Bible and makes it into a novel of epic proportions/5. What God says about his word is a deep, complex, and staggering thing.

And each book of the written word testifies to the wonder of his revelation. I decided to take a look, book by book, selecting a representative passage from each to highlight many of the things God's word says about God's words.

The word of God is Effectual. God’s Word never returns void (Isaiah ). We do not read the Bible solely to be changed people (see point 10), but we do become changed people as we read the Bible.

And that testimony should be given its due weight. In the end, these three reasons provide a great basis for believing that the Scriptures are the Word of God.That you read God’s Word is more important than when you read God’s Word.
