ON THIS EPISODE
The bible is the word of God. And in order to live by its words, we need to read and study them. The amazing thing about the bible is that you don’t have to be a scholar to understand its central message. But you can spend your whole life trying to master everything it contains and still only scratch the surface.
Along the way, it helps have insightful resources to point you in the right direction as you dive deeper.
In this episode, we discuss 5 commonly misinterpreted bible verses. We walk through how they have often been gotten wrong, and how we can learn to interpret bible verses according to the authors’ original intent. Below are the verses we discuss:
- Matthew 18:20
- 1 Corinthians 10:13
- Luke 10:38-41
- 2 Chronicles 2:14
- Proverbs 22:6
