My friend Bev and I are hosting a watch party for the Revive Our Hearts women’s ministry annual conference Revive ’19. It’ll be a little different than a regular watch party and that we will have a chat box so that you can chat during the sessions and then we will have an hour or so of discussion afterwards so we can talk about how what we have learned can be applied to our lives. Here is the link to get more information and to register:
Revive ’19 Conference Watch Party
We all know the Scripture is profitable for teaching all of us, so why does it matter who it was written to? Peter Krol answers this question in his blog The Knowable Word. Enjoy!
Why We Should Care Who The Audience Is
By Peter Krol
In yesterday’s post we considered who the primary audience of Proverbs was. Why bother?
The main reason is because, although the Bible was written for us (1 Cor 10:11), it was not written to us. Every book of the Bible was written by a particular person, for a particular group of people, in a particular situation. We put ourselves in danger of misunderstanding the text if we don’t first understand these historical circumstances. We must put ourselves in their shoes.
