    Reply to Renee Ellis Great Question: "How is the best way to learn the Bible if you're reading it yourself?"

    Precious friend, Renee, since the Blessed Holy Spirit is our Teacher For 'understanding,' please see God's 'Simple' Will: Link

    Precious Renee, Please Be Richly Encouraged, Enlightened, Exhorted, and Edified!

    ( 2 Timothy 2:15; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 1:3-9; Ephesians 3:9 = Grace/Mystery fellowship {Romans - Philemon}, For ALL "to SEE," today,? )

    My 'suggestion,' after you are saved, and have 'received The Holy Spirit for understanding,' would be to 'start reading' Romans Through Philemon {God's GRACE Message for Today}, and then 'learn {probably slowly} as you read The Rest Of The Bible!'

    Romans 15:4

    "For Whatsoever Things Were Written Aforetime Were Written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of The Scriptures might have Hope." Amen?


    Please note, that is 'my suggestion' only; others may 'suggest' Different 'ways of learning'...

    May God 'Richly' Encourage you, Renee, on your spiritual journey With HIM!

    How is the best way to learn the Bible if you're reading it yourself and I don't have a priest I preacher preaching to you

    Hi Renee My suggestion is To read Romans through thessalonians which is addressed to the church of God in the age of grace which is what we currently live in. Then the gospels and book of Acts then the rest, but its all Gods Word.

    Sister Renee, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    You have a priest and that priest LIVES IN YOU and he will CAUSE you to understand his words if you never cease ASKING him. You have to read and study, and the more you READ and STUDY and ASK and BELIEVE, the more he will reveal to you.

    1 John 2:27 But the anointing you which you have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teach you all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, you shall abide in him.

    Colossians 1:27 .... this mystery.... CHRIST IN YOU .......

    Hello Patty. That's actually a difficult question to answer as there have been many attempts, over the centuries, to translate the Bible into English. Even in the first century, folk such as Bishop of Sherborne, the Venerable Bede, Abbot Aelfric, etc., made attempts to translate portions of the Bible into English. Of course, the English used then would not be legible by us today. Yet, in 1382 AD, John Wycliffe was credited with producing the first English Bible in its entirety. I've never ever seen one to read & handle it, but if you search on the Web, as I did, you can try to read it. I tried but couldn't read most of it.

    Then we have William Tyndale, who in 1526 AD produced the complete New Testament in English (printed in England) & one, Miles Coverdale, finished the work in 1535 AD, printed in Antwerp, Belgium. So, it was only from the 16th & 17th Centuries that the English translations became more familiar to our reading & comprehension. And this was seen in the Tyndale Bible, the Great Bible, the Geneva Bible, & of course, our beloved King James Bible (in 1611 AD).

    Thanks so much!!! I didn't know those even existed. Past few years I've found deeper meaning to: Proverbs 2:4 , Matthew 13:44 Please excuse my interruption.

    Indeed T. Levis, the great joy & satisfaction that comes when one finds that piece of gold in the Scriptures, which isn't simply to satisfy our hunger for the Word, as when it provides the very answer we need for our lives or to minister to another person.
