Seven "Rules" of Bible Study

1. The context rules when interpreting the text.

2. The text must be interpreted in light of all Scripture.

3. Scripture will never contradict itself.

4. Scripture should be interpreted literally (or naturally according to its genre).

5. Do not develop doctrine from obscure or difficult passages.

6. Discover the author’s original intended meaning and honor that meaning.

7. Check your conclusions using reliable resources.
