  1. How to understand the Bible?

    1. Read it yourself, thoughtfully, and regularly.

    2. Use good bible commentary.

    3. Sign up for courses at a Bible school.

    4. Practice everything you learn in this book in your life.

    5. Don't expect that at some point you will finally understand the Bible completely and completely.

  2. The Bible is the word of God. It is better to start reading the Bible with the New Testament. The Word of God is a prophetic word in which God tells us about the past, present, and future. 2 Peter 1: 20-21 “No prophecy in the Scriptures (the Bible) can be resolved by itself. For the prophecy was never uttered according to the will of man, but the holy men of God uttered it, being moved by the Holy Spirit.” This passage says that a person alone cannot understand the word of God. To understand the Bible, you need to ask for help from Someone who is the Author of this book-God. Turn to God personally in a simple prayer so that He will let you understand the meaning of what you read. If many things are not clear, then still continue to ask for understanding and continue to read, God will definitely give His help. It is impossible for a person to contain everything at once, so God reveals it gradually, just as we studied in school and received knowledge. It is also written that the first man did not reach the full knowledge of the Bible, and neither does the last. But God will reveal everything that you need.

    Through the Bible, God tells us about Himself, reveals His essence, His character, why He created the earth and man. The Bible is not just a story about God and people, it is an example for us. It contains examples of people's bad actions and what it led them to do, so that we can learn not to do this. 1 Corinthians 10: 11 “All these things happened to them as images, and they are described for the instruction of us who have reached the last ages.” There are also good examples in the Bible that teach us how to live properly before God.

    2 Timothy 3: 16 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, equipped for every good work.” Through the Bible, God reveals to us the state of our hearts, He lets us see our sins, and He wants us to ask Him for deliverance from all these sins. At our request, He frees us from any sinful addictions. Through the Bible, God teaches us how to live properly on this earth, so that we do not go to hell for eternal torment, but inherit eternal life.

    The Bible was written by God so wisely that it contains answers to all the vital questions of man. It contains a lot of wise advice for the family, for raising children, and for relationships between people. This is the most important book for everyone's life.

  3. And if you are a reasonable person, then you don't need to understand. Everyone has the right to choose and the right to choose faith or disbelief. There are not many true Orthodox believers in Russia. The rest just pretend to wear a cross or observe some trifles from Orthodox life. You can believe in Jesus, Mahomet, and Allah, and you can believe in nothing but yourself

  4. Or maybe not necessary? There are so many contradictions in the Bible that there is a popular saying: a person who has read the Bible from cover to cover becomes a schizophrenic or a convinced atheist.
