Squares: 4 ideas that, in general, square (fit) with your thinking

  • "Bible study depends on a greater understanding of the whole Bible" (Cartwright et al, 2016) Chapter 2
  • The genres of the Bible share some things in common (just as different sports share some things in common); however, each genre can be set apart from the others in its own category.  (Cartwright et al, 2016) Chapter 4
  • There are two reasons that this discussion matters. First, if the Bible is God's Word and is true, it speaks with the authority of God. This means every Christian ought to live in submission to its authority. When it speaks, we ought to listen.  (Cartwright et al, 2016) Chapter 2
  • . We are unable to follow the instructions and rules the bible teaches us. "We simply cannot be good enough long enough" (Cartwright et al, 2016). Chapter 5

Triangles: 3 angles you have never considered before

  • "We should not be afraid of being honest with God" (Cartwright et al, 2016) Chapter 4 - this is something that is important to remember. God knows the truth it is vital to be honest with him and yourself. 
  • Much of what God gave to the people of Israel in order to govern the nation does not necessarily apply to us today, and it would be a mistake to think or live otherwise. (Cartwright et al, 2016) Chapter 4
  • If you know the history of a person or event, you will have a better understanding of that person or event. (Cartwright et al, 2016) Chapter 2 - a ridiculous as it sounds, I never thought of something so obvious when it comes to the Bible. Doing this just as I would with any other book would assist very much in the understanding.

Circles: 2 questions that are circling in your mind

  • While reading these chapters, I begin to think of the lessons that I have been taught in Bible studies over the years and need to examine what I think I know and try to understand the actual facts of the Bible.
  • When I read the Bible is try to relate my personal life to what I am reading. I am now questioning if that is the correct way to read it. I think that if I were to read it with a open mind and heart, I would learn significantly more.

Hearts: 1 idea that you loved.

  • Rather than speculate on what every detail might symbolize (or "allegorize") it is better to grasp the main idea of a parable. Often the meaning of a parable is revealed in the surrounding context of a passage. (Cartwright et al, 2016) Chapter 3 - this is extremely to important to understand all of the context surrounding each passage of the Bible. Doing this gives the reader the actual meaning that is trying to be conveyed.
