Basics of Bible Interpretation
This is a study book. If you do not have your Bible side by side with it as you study you will
miss much of its value. The format I have used is simple. I have cited principles by which one
can interpret the Scriptures, and then I have illustrated the use of those principles to analyze a
portion of scripture. You will want to follow my analysis step by step in your own Bible to really
appreciate what I’m trying to do. You may not agree with all of my interpretive opinions, but I
hope you will have gained the capability of reaching your own conclusions based on your
personal application of interpretive principles.
