It is important to always study the Bible. When studying the Bible, it is best to read the verses and take notations on what you read. This part of the site is a guide to help you study the Bible efficiently and more comfortably. Under each book, there are in depth study notes for your benefit, however these in no way serve as a replacement to actually reading the Bible. We encourage you follow these notes for general guidance but also read your Bible and let God be His own interpreter.
