What does Abundancy look like in Scripture?

From one of my favorite blogs, comes the context behind what Jesus meant by the “abundant” life. I saw this article while working through the deception during the teaching I received as a new believer years ago and the Christianity of the Bible. I hope this blesses you as it did me.

New Way of Studying Inductively

Today, I was listening to a book titled “Grasping God’s Word” by J. Scott Duvall and J. Daniel Hays. It provides a new perspective for me with regard to interpreting God’s Word.

I am by no means finished with it and may not in the end find it useful, but so far, I love the concept and different approach.
