As the Bible is an ancient literature that was written some thousands of years ago and has gone through a long process of transmission, under the providence of the Holy Spirit, modern readers must approach it with humility and deference. 

This very first course in reading the Bible for understanding consists of two parts. The first part examines the nature of the Bible (the Old and the New Testaments) itself—what is Bible, who wrote it, and how was the Bible transmitted to us, etc. In the light of its very nature, the second part explains how the Bible should be read for understanding, as Apostle Paul instructs Timothy: “. . .correctly handles the word of truth.” (2Ti 2:15)

In this course, we will study four important topics: the Greatness of God, the Goodness of God, God’s Special Agents: Angels, and Eschatology.

Under the Greatness of God, we will into five attributes of God (Spirituality, Personality, Life, Infinity, Constancy) based on what the Scriptures say on these attributes. 

Similarly, we will look into what the Bible says on the Goodness of God under the five headings: Holiness, Righteousness, Justice, Integrity and Love.

God’s Special Agents: Angels is another topic we will study in some details. We will identify and understand good as well as evil angels and their unique characteristics. We will also explore the   role of good angels in carrying God’s plan. We will look into what the Bible says about the limitations and final destiny of Satan and his servants. 

The last part of this course will be devoted to the doctrine of Eschatology, or the Last Things (Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell). This doctrine includes Christ’s Second Coming, which, for believers, is the most important event we eagerly look forward to. For Christ’s return means that our existing sinful, corrupted body will be transformed into a glorious, resurrected body suitable to live under a New Heaven and a New Earth. While it is natural to ask, as the apostles did, when will it happen, the Scriptural answer is “anytime”. The Apostle Peter says in 2 Peter 3:10  ” The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night”. And the important message which Jesus gives through His parable of the ten virgins (five wise and five foolish) that we should follow the example of the five wise virgins and “watch therefore for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming” (Matt 25:13). The truths of eschatology should arouse in us watchfulness and alertness in the expectation of Christ’s Return.
