Episode 5: What to Do When You Get Stuck
In this episode, we’ll look at the three most common issues that can derail our Bible study and how we can overcome them:
Problem 1 - These passages contradict! How can I possibly find the meaning?
Questions to ask yourself: What else happens in Scripture related to this topic, beyond this verse? Is it bound in a cultural time or is it a timeless principle?
Problem 2 - It seems like the God of the Old Testament and the New Testament disagree.
Questions to ask yourself: What if I’m wrong? Have I read both the Old and New Testament in their entirety? Have I explored the backstory?
Problem 3 – The Old Testament doesn't seem relevant in my life.
Questions to ask yourself: Have you read large passages (several chapters or even an entire book) of the Old Testament at once? Can you read it for the larger story and not only read at the verse level?
