This Blog Will Sunset June 30, 2018
For an explanation, see the post Simplifying. Although this blog will remain accessible until mid-2018, I will not be doing any more posting to it. All my writing is now focused on books, which you can learn about here.
I began this particular blog in February 2010 (having begun my first blog in December 2009), but I did not begin writing posts of the type indexed below until June 2014. I explain this in Revising the Name and Structure of This Blog.
The posts you see linked below will help you get into the Bible. You’ll see how a given word or concept is treated by different Bible authors. You’ll be struck with the consistency of the Bible’s themes, which is to be altogether expected given the fact that the Holy Spirit was the source inspiring all the authors.
The studies start out with a single word focus. The idea is to “meditate” on the word of God (as is suggested in Psalm 1:2 and elsewhere), and to do this one word, one concept, one verse, at a time. As you see how different Bible authors treat the same idea, you’ll deepen your appreciation of that idea. This will enrich your faith and your obedience in response to what the Bible is teaching about that idea.
In the index below I have not included all subsidiary posts. For example, I have written several subsidiary posts on “Heart” (e.g. Activities of the Heart, Conditions of the Heart, Nourishment of the Heart). You will find a link to them when you click on the post to “Heart,” but they are not included in the index below as it would complicate the index and make it harder to use. By the way, some posts are subsidiary to more than one subject. For example, the post Faith Is Righteousness is a subsidiary post to Faith – and to Righteousness as well. Because of the many subsidiary posts, there are many more posts than the list below would indicate.
Look for the word or concept you want to study in the list, and from the link you will find other directions to search which are linked to that word. This index includes only a fraction of the Bible studies here. You find out about the rest as you follow the links on a subject that compels your interest.
By the way, at the end of this list is a link to a set of “vocabularies” or “lexicons.” These represent word “clusters” which can enrich your appreciation of themes that run throughout the Bible.
Farther below, you will find links to character studies and grammatical studies. However, I have only recently started that process and it will be a while before the inventory of those studies is built up.
