After reading the assigned chapters inEveryday Bible Study(Chapters 1-5), identify the following items:Squares:1. History is just as relevant today as it was in the past. We need to know the past in order to know howto deal with issues of the present and future.2. The genre of wisdom is one that I have found that I have applied most to my everyday living and ithelps me to make better decisions and have better understanding of certain situations.3. After reading through the chapters I now understand that the Bible is not just a “road map” used toapply to my everyday living however it takes constant studying of scripture to achieve understanding ona much deeper level.4. Trusting Gods plan instead of trying to do things on my own. I am unable to save myself because I amlost.Triangles:1. I have never considered the importance of breaking down the Bible into the different genres and thatknowing the difference between these genres will help in my interpretation of the text.2. When classifying the prophets I did not know that major and minor classified the lengths of thepassages and not the significance of the prophet.3. I have never considered the importance of not viewing the Bible as a book of “rules and regulation.This view of the Bible will ultimately miss the greatest point of all and that is the road to redemption. Asstated from the text,This view of Scripture reveals a poor understanding of God’s plan of redemption.If this perspective is taken to its logical conclusion, then Jesus Christ was not necessary. In the end, Godcould have simply left us with a book and a mandate to follow the instructions as best we can.”(Cartwright & Hulshof, p. 31)Circles:1. Why is that we don’t have more of the early life stories? And why the Bible is not a good historicalbiography for Christ.
