BIBLICAL THEOLOGY

Thomas Crane wrote:

The discipline of reading and understanding the Bible has long been an issue of frustration for many believers. Some passages in the Bible are just not easy to understand and the temptation can be to stick with reading the tried and true passages, the familiar and comfortable texts.

Biblical theology helps show believers how to read and understand the Bible. Graeme Goldsworthy, author of According to Plan says, “Biblical theology is a way of understanding the Bible as a whole, so that we can see the plan of salvation as it unfolds step by step. It is concerned with God’s message to us in the form that it actually takes in Scripture.”  Read the rest of the review ….
