Christians are commanded to study the Bible, but more often than not we will hit 'roadblocks' on our path to understanding God's written word. Which one among us has read the beautiful promises of eternal security in books like Ephesians and Romans, only to watch them seemingly crash on the rocks of apparent contradiction when we got to Matthew, Acts and Hebrews? If this has ever been your experience, then take heart.
On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we take an in-depth look at the 'transitional books' of Matthew, Acts and Hebrews, and how knowing how to rightly divide them can be the difference between pass or fail as we study the scriptures. Matthew is the transition from the Old Testament to the New Testament, Hebrews is the transition from the Kingdom Age to the Church Age, and Hebrews is the transition from the Church Age to the time of Jacob's trouble.
'Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.' 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
