It’s Hard To Understand The Bible And That’s Great. This Is Why

You might be embarrassed to admit it, but honestly, it’s hard to understand the Bible. If you hear someone saying otherwise, ask them about the last Bible passage they read. You will be lucky if you get anything besides an excuse.

It’s hard to read and understand the Bible so most people ignore it. Why would you spend your time reading a book you don’t understand? As a result, the Bible is like any other classic, very popular, widely quoted but rarely studied and often misunderstood.

It’s hard to admit to your friends and family that you don’t read your Bible. You don’t want them to know that you find reading the Bible boring and unnecessarily complicated. The phrases seem dated, the metaphors incomprehensible, and the history irrelevant.

It’s hard to confess to your home group that you don’t understand the Bible. After all,  the Bible is God’s word and in it there’s eternal life. But how does it fit in today? New Testament books were written more than 2000 years ago and some of the Old Testament about about 3,500 years ago. Can text that old relate to a person in the 21st Century?
