The second rule of Bible study is to know that the Scriptures are about Jesus

Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

  1. We study the Bible to know about Jesus
  2. They must know what the Bible says about eternal life
  3. Every verse, every truth some how either directly or indirectly points me to Jesus and His finished work on the cross
  4. The underlying truths that get us to Jesus is to understand and look for the following
    1. Man’s failure
    2. God’s grace
    3. And how to get to Calvary
