Would you like to make Bible reading more enjoyable, understandable, and applicable? Our two-part Bible study series on using the CIA method concludes with Interpretation and Application.
The CIA method of Bible study includes Context-Interpretation-Application. In part one, we discussed the literary and historical context. In this episode, we are learning about “Interpretation” and “Application.”
Many people are surprised to learn that there is only one interpretation of a particular verse or passage. And that is the author’s intended meaning for his original audience. Once this is known, we seek the underlying universal principle or eternal truth and apply it to our lives today.
