Charles Spurgeon once said: “How often shall we have to tell people that the Bible is not a mere collection of separate sentences which they may tear from their context just as they please? We are not to treat the verses of the Bible as pigeons might treat a bushel of peas—picking out one here and another there, without any thought of the surroundings of that particular passage! No, this blessed Book was written for men to read right through—and if they are to understand the meaning of it, they must read each sentence in the connection in which it is found.”

Over lunch one Sunday after church you and a couple of your friends are discussing the pastor’s sermon. His message was convicting, challenging, and encouraging. However, one of your friends says, “I don’t get why Pastor Edgewater always has to talk about the meaning of this word in Greek or the meaning of that word in Hebrew. It does not matter to me what a word means. What I care most about is what the passage means.”
Using the material from Chapters 23–26 in Everyday Bible Study (both text and videos), how would you respond to your friend so that she realizes the importance of doing a word study in order to understand the meaning of the passage? Remember to support your answer using material from Everyday Bible Study as well as the Scriptures.
