I wrote this post as part of my “NT Quotes the OT” series. It arose from my own Bible reading early in the year, when I kept track of every explicit OT quotation in the NT. The raw data made it onto the Resources page.
Another post from the “NT Quotes the OT” series.
As an aside from my series on Proverbs, I posted this recording of Paul Browne’s sermon from my own wedding in 2004. The recording is almost 10 years old, but the sermon remains the best I’ve heard (and—really—not just because it was my own wedding).
From Proverbs 5, I challenge modern Christians to avoid two of the commonplace mistakes about sexually graphic Bible texts.
This post from last year on Proverbs 1:10-19 contains specific financial advice and continues to be heavily read.
I sort of cheated on this one. This post serves as a Table of Contents for the entire series on the Observation-Interpretation-Application Method. At first, readers had to click back and forth to this post in order to read through the series. It’s fixed now, though! At the end of each post, there is a direct link to the next post in the series.
The short series of posts on teaching Bible study to children offers tips for teaching different age levels. My unique twist is that I don’t just want to help you teach them the Bible; I want to help you teach them how to study the Bible (though, see the “4-year-old” part 2 post for a more focused list of suggestions). They don’t have to be old or brilliant to get it.
This was my first post in the “Teach Children” series. It’s been viewed almost 30% more than the 4-year-old post. May it help you to bring the beauty of Bible study to your littlest ones.
This post serves as the cornerstone for the blog. It’s linked to in the top menu to make it easy for new visitors to find. It’s called “Our Bible Study Method” because I wasn’t the only blogger here when I wrote it! In the last year, my partners have all had to move on, but I can’t bring myself to call this terrific method “my” method.
This post on Proverbs 5 is all about sex. And most of the post is an extended quotation from that “Best Wedding Sermon” (see #8 above), which shows that I’m not biased in my belief that it truly is the best wedding sermon.
Thank you for reading the blog this year! I’m delighted to partner with you in bringing the gospel of grace to our generation through God’s knowable word.
