Introduction to Biblical Studies
It is my desire and hope that by introducing my various methods of an effective analysis of biblical studies will be an encouragement to you. I am not saying that my method is the only method. Rather, I am saying that here is a method that works for me. Please feel free to take what will work for you, and casting aside what you consider unnecessary for your spiritual life.

It is my pleasure to share with you some facts that I learned while attending classes at Liberty University, which is located in Lynchburg, Virginia. Although I had been using my own developing method, I was open to discovering a way, which would take me even deeper into the Word of God. I wanted to know how to do an archaeological study with a biblical spin. I wanted needed exposure to the culture and various languages of the Bible. I also wanted to know about the original languages of both the Old and New Testaments. This meant that I had to learn where to find the best reference material. Recently, in one of my classes, I discovered that I had to set aside certain commentaries because they were too old. These updated commentaries gave better insight on the biblical passages. There is one thing that I would caution on which is being very selective concerning your choices of reference.

One thing that I chose to do was research the background of the individual. I asked with I believed the same way the individual did. What was their view on certain doctrines? Was what I believed in contradiction to their view on a certain subject? If they were post-millennialist and I am pre-millennialist, then they would have a completely different view on other scriptures. I had to weight whether I could read their words without being opposite to their views. I know that this may be difficult, but I have chosen to be this way. This is my personal choice, and I am not suggesting that you be the same. This only a personal thought. While your personal stance on a scripture or belief interferes with what the commentator states about a certain topic or passage?
