Knowing Scripture Study Group


One of the most important skills any Christian can develop is the proper interpretation of the Bible. R.C. Sproul's book, Knowing Scripture, is an excellent introduction to this skill. Join us Sunday mornings in the Ladies' Parlor Sunday School Class from September through December as we discuss this book.

Q. How is the Word of God to be read?

A. The holy Scriptures are to be read with an high and reverent esteem of them; with a firm persuasion that they are the very Word of God, and that he only can enable us to understand them; with desire to know, believe, and obey the will of God revealed in them; with diligence, and attention to the matter and scope of them; with meditation, application, self-denial, and prayer.
