The Practical & Priceless Benefits of Bible Study

Why do Bible study? Is it worth it; can you understand it? It is a daunting book, but its practical help and its eternal benefits are priceless!

The world’s best seller is not an easy book. The Bible was written in different styles over hundreds of years, and it covers deep spiritual principles. But the rewards of careful and thoughtful study are tremendous. The Bible teaches us how to live a more fulfilling and abundant life now, and it shows us how to become more like our loving Father and Jesus Christ, our Elder Brother.

Here are some of the Bible study tips from our article “How to Study the Bible.”

  • Understand who God is.
  • Seek God’s help.
  • Have a teachable attitude.
  • Follow accepted rules of interpretation.
  • Use the Bible to interpret itself.
  • Study both the Old and New Testaments.
  • Use study resources appropriately.
