We live in a soundbite world where things are often taken out of context, or worse, twisted into meaning something the original authors never meant. The ramifications for this are often devastating. Unfortunately, many of us are guilty of approaching Scripture the same way, taking verses out of context or twisting them to fit our worldview or bias. While there are certainly those that do this intentionally, many Christians have simply never been taught how to accurately "handle the word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15).
In Part 2 of Keeping Scripture in Context, Pastors Ryan and Jared provide an overview of how the Bible is structured and layout a system for studying the Bible that will help you keep Scripture in context--and discover the theological principle for your life today.

  1. Pentateuch / Torah (Gen - Deuteronomy)
  2. Historical Books (Joshua - Esther)
  3. Psalms
  4. Wisdom Books (Job, Proverbs - Song of Songs)
  5. Prophets, Major & Minor (Isaiah - Malachi)


  1. Four Gospels (Matthew - John)
  2. Book of Acts
  3. Paul's Letters (Romans - Philemon)
  4. General Letters (Hebrews - Jude)
  5. Revelation
