Context separates what we want the Bible to say from what the Bible really says. That's why Explore the Bible digs deep into the biblical, cultural, and archaeological context of Scripture, utilizing every trustworthy tool available to help us understand the original intent of each passage.
"All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work."(2 Tim. 3:16-17)
"But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves."(James 1:22)
The verses above represent the dual mission of Explore the Bible: to both know and live the Word of God. The Bible is a living and breathing text. It is worthy of our study and every effort to understand what it teaches. Because it is the holy Word of God, the Bible is also a framework through which we live the Great Commission of Christ, from daily moments of ordinary faithfulness to a lifelong devotion to His mission.
Every book is the inspired Word of God. And not just the easy ones. Song of Songs is inspired. Obadiah is inspired. Revelation is inspired. Because every book matters, Explore the Bible digs into every book.
Every passage of Scripture has a context that illuminates its original intent. In order to have the most complete understanding of Scripture, we must understand the historical and cultural factors that influenced Scripture as it was written, as well as how it fits into Scripture as a whole.
Essential to our knowledge of Scripture is the reality that it actually happened. Explore the Bible presents archaeological evidence to illuminate the very real people, places, and events in the Bible.
In a culture grasping for any truth, it is more important we know God's Truth than ever before. Explore the Bible is committed to helping Christians of all ages develop a deeper knowledge of the Bible, what it tells us about God, and what He is asking us to do.
The Bible isn't just something that happened, it is a living text that still speaks, inspires, and compels us today. That's why Explore the Bible is committed to helping us both know and live the Word of God.
