The Bible Can Be Difficult To Read!

God's <abbr>EPIC</abbr> Adventure
The Bible has been around for a long time, but not as long as God has. It’s been here for several millennia in its literary form and several millennia before that in its oral form.

The Bible is one of the most exciting books in the world to read. However, sometimes it is difficult to read and understand. There are several reasons for this.

  • First, the Bible was written to a different culture in a different time frame. People spoke, though, and lived differently.
  • Second, because of the way it is printed <em>in chapters and verses</em> we tend to read incomplete portions of Scripture instead of whole stories.  (Story capitalized is a reference to the metanarrative of Scripture while story not capitalized means other stories.)
  • Third, we don’t know where it came from or how it developed.
  • Fourth, we overlook the part that man played in God’s plan to share his words with us.

Jesus Followers


There are many synonyms to use for the word believer, which is the most common word for a person who has "converted" to follow Jesus. I have chosen "Jesus follower(s) or follower(s) of Jesus instead of the word believer in these presentations to allow the reader an opportunity to move away from the idea of believer which conjures up the possible thought of "ascent" to a set of doctrines that have been assembled by different groups over the centuries and show up in this day and age as a set of statements posted on web sites and other written material. These sets of beliefs are suggested by many as the ones that one should ascent to so that upon death the one who assents can go to heaven, i.e., just believe and you are good to go. Jesus followers/followers of Jesus suggest an action that one should take. Remember, Jesus told his disciples to follow him. Yes, belief is important, but one must move beyond belief to action.
