Last Wednesday, we had our second session of what we have called “Discover the Word,” a discipleship class which I proposed to the leadership of the ReThink Community and which was approved. At the start we watched a short video on “What is the Bible?” produced by TheBibleProject.com. It’s a good video explaining what the Bible is all about in layman’s terms. Then we also watched a video interview of Gordon Fee, one of the authors of the book, “How to Read the Bible for All its Worth.” He was interviewed by Dr. Mike Feazell on the topic, “How Should We Read the Bible.” He is also one of the translators of the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible. His thoughts are helpful in how to read the Bible well.
At the last part of the session we discussed “Bible Interpretatation 101“ and the value of understanding the various contexts found in the Bible. Here’s a video of that session for those who are interested to follow our weekly discipleship class:
