What Does It Say?

“I read the Bible every day, but sometimes I have no clue what I just read!”

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Before we can interpret and apply God’s Word, we need to understand what it says. Here are a few ways you can answer the question, “What does it say?”

One is to summarize.

"One: discussion about suffering and sin. Two: blind man healed. Three: . . ."

Nancy: Write the passage in your own words.

"It just so happened that Jesus healed this guy on Saturday, and it made some people . . ."

Nancy: Or you can ask questions, as if you were writing a news story.

  • Who wrote this?

"The apostle John."

  • What happened?

"He made mud with His saliva."

  • When was it written?

"I'm going to have to look that one up."

  • Where did this happen?

"It looks like just outside the Temple in Jerusalem."

  • How did it happen?
  • Why was this written?

"He recorded all the miracles to help us believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God."

First, discover what the passage says; then don't forget to apply it to your own life.

With Seeking Him, I'm Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
