The Bible is both the written word of God and a human creation. A number of people are used in a selection process to gather scripture for use in the bible; this would include the King James translators, who were men of varying backgrounds but all versed in the Bible, as well as other private individuals who had experience with various versions of biblical material.
Many people will choose to read the entire bible each day, however there are those who just want to read a particular passage during the time they are awake in the morning. There are a variety of ways to go about getting these scriptures for study. Some people like to do it themselves, while others like to call in an expert.
There are a number of people that have taken up a task of studying the bible since it was created, one of them being Martin Luther, who is credited for converting many people to Catholicism. This man would also write his own book, titled the Thirty-Nine Articles, which consists of several verses from the bible and sometimes other works of inspiration.
Martin Luther would lead a number of different groups in his quest to bring the bible closer to the reader, while also making it easier for more people to understand. He made reference to a time in his life when he and other Lutherans were unable to be understood by the commoners, therefore they resorted to reading the bible out loud, or listening to it in private. Other Lutherans would ask to be instructed by others in addition to Luther, in order to not be lost.
If you are interested in having a bible study group to read from the bible, then you should be able to find someone in your area that would be willing to do so. You can find a local congregation, or even a local pastor if you are in a remote area.
You may also ask someone who has studied the bible before to guide you, especially if you are trying to figure out where to start. You may have a number of different pieces of information available and need to be sure that the person who is teaching you the scripture is teaching the same piece of scripture as well. You could also inquire about what other pastors are teaching the group.
Reading is not always as easy as you may think. If you do not understand the biblical piece of information, then you could have some questions and problems regarding what you have read. It is necessary to consider the meaning of the scripture before asking the question or being confused by what you are reading.
The bible is a gift from God, and the gift remains the same when it is written down in the reader’s hands. The study of the bible is a task that only a select few have completed, however for those who choose to take it on, there are a number of people who would help you through the process.
