Excerpts from the March-April 2010 Issue!
Matt Chandler on Beating Indifference with Bible Study
“Where the Word of God goes out, there’s always a response,” says Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor of the Village Church in Highland Village, Texas. “There’s an immediate response to the word of God and then there’s a continuing response. The Scriptures are primary, but you’ve got to build on them in expectation of (and accountability for) their application.”
For Chandler, Scripture must be balanced with practical application because a church’s emotive response is driven by its theological framework. Matt Chandler preaches a reliance on God’s Word with passion because he wants his congregation to believe it.
A Resurrected Servant Prophesied 500 Years Before Jesus
John D. Barry says, “A scholar friend of mine once remarked, 'I must confess: if there is anything that convinces me that the Bible is inspired and from God, it is Isaiah 53.' " Isaiah 52:13–53:12 comes out of nowhere. There is no precedent for an innocent servant of God suffering and dying for the iniquities of others. It is shocking, graphic and brutal, yet profound.
Howard Hendricks' 4 Steps for Better Bible Study
When people are taught how to study the Bible, they “get the excitement of actually discovering stuff,” says Dr. Howard Hendricks. “That is what is lacking today. We give people all the answers. If you don’t have the basics, you are not going to get that much out of Bible study. Once people are taught how to do something, they can see the value of it.”
Hendricks has trained thousands of Bible students at Dallas Theological Seminary, including Chuck Swindoll and David Jeremiah. For a period, he was even the chaplain for the Dallas Cowboys. For much of his life he’s been a traveling evangelist for Bible study—ministering in over 80 countries.
Before You Read Isaiah, Read This
If you want to understand the book of Isaiah, don’t read straight through it. You’ll get lost. The book isn’t arranged sequentially. It’s made up of eight major section that oscillate back and forth between two distinct time periods.
So how should you read the book of Isaiah? The most important thing is to recognize the separate sections and time references. Then create your own reading plan that will allow you to understand the book.
