WHY STUDY THE BIBLE?

“And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.” (Ecc. 12:12), but there is only one book written by God.

How many copies are sold and how that compares with the #1 best seller is irrelevant (Matt. 24:35). Many have tried to destroy the Bible. People like Matthew Henry have even predicted its disappearance.

WHY SHOULD WE KNOW THE BIBLE?

It Is from God.

It Gives Sight (Cures Blindness)

It Will Save Your Soul

We Will Be Judged by It

If you were going to court tomorrow, would you want to know the terms by which you would be judged? Would you check them out—go to great expense to be informed?
