Reading and studying the Bible can be an exciting and rewarding learning experience. Many people are intimidated by the sheer volume of the Bible, as well as the different translations and “kinds” of Bibles that can be used. There are a few steps that a person can take to make Bible study easier and more enjoyable.

Choosing the right translation.

There are many different translations of the Bible. They include the New International Version (NIV), the New Living Bible (NLB), the New Standard Version and the New Revised Standard Version just to name a few. It is important to choose a translation that is easy to understand. The NIV is one of the most widely used and easily understood versions available and is the most recommended version for beginning Bible readers. The Living Bible translations are paraphrases of the Bible and so are not word for word translations. However, the paraphrases can be good to use for chapters or books that are particularly difficult to understand. There are also Study Bibles that include explanations and commentary to go with the passages of scripture to help explain the reading.

Use Bible study aids.

There are a wide variety of study aids that have been written for the purpose of helping people understand the Bible better. There are commentaries that are put together by Bible scholars that provide detailed explanations about the different books of the Bible and even passages of scripture within those books. Bible Dictionaries are available for readers to look up words from the Bible that need more explanation or definition. Scores of other books have been written on the individual books of the Bible as well as books with theological terms or other words from the Bible that can be looked up for further explanation. There are books called devotional books that are designed to assist in the understanding of the Bible and help to show how to take passages and apply them to everyday life. These books are typically easier to understand and make great supplements to Bible study. Using a variety of study aids will help the reader better understand the passages that are being read as well as the background information behind it. Most study aids can be found at Christian bookstores and public libraries.

Ask questions.

Church ministers are required to get a certain amount of theological education as a basis for their ministry and many of those go on to get extensive education in theology. Many churches also have retired ministers and other people with extensive background in Bible theology. The reader should not be afraid to ask these people for their help with understanding books or passages of the Bible that they are having difficulty deciphering. Many churches and communities have Bible studies that are available for people to attend where they can learn more about the Bible and theological issues.

Start reading at the beginning.

The reader should not skip around when reading the Bible but should start reading at the beginning of the Old Testament or the beginning of the New Testament. If it is desirable or necessary to skip around it is important to at least start reading at the beginning of the book of the Bible so that all of the immediate background information can be obtained.

The Bible can be very intimidating and difficult to read and/or understand or even the most devoted and experienced Christians. This should not be a reason not to read the Bible because of the vast number of study aids that are available for the person who is reading and studying the Bible.
