Understanding The Bible



When it comes to reading AND understanding the Bible, what do we do when we encounter parts that seem beyond us?

Sometimes I think it’d be easier to learn Chinese than to completely understand the Bible!    

I've been reading the Bible in two translations—one that’s more traditional and one that’s written in more of an everyday language.  But, no matter how simple the language, there are still some things that happened and some concepts that I struggle to understand. 

A friend told me that even though she had formal training in the Bible, it’s hard for her, too.  So, when it comes to reading AND understanding the Bible, what do we do? 

There are books and commentaries that can help.  But, I've found that asking God’s Spirit to help me understand what I’m reading is crucial! The Bible itself says if we lack wisdom, or understanding, we should ask God for help.  So, I’m doing a LOT of asking and starting to gain a little more understanding!
