Word Studies

Rick Moffett


The Bible, like any other book, is composed of words, lots of words put together to form sentences and paragraphs, and ultimately a complete book. When reading the Bible, most of us encounter words that we do not know the meaning of. As with any book, a misunderstanding of a word can cause you to completely miss the author’s meaning. If you don’t understand what you are reading, Bible reading becomes no more than a box-checking activity, e.g., I read my two chapters in the Old Testament and two chapters in the New Testament like my Bible reading plan suggested. I have found that it is better to read one verse of Scripture and understand it, than a whole chapter and have no idea what it means.


Take the time to find out what every word means when you read the Bible or any other book. You will find your reading much more profitable.
