How to Understand the Bible: A Complete List of Articles

The How to Understand the Bible series has wrapped up! If you’ve been following along since the beginning, you’ve taken a tour of the entire Bible, and given thought to the major themes and questions raised by each section of Scripture. If you missed out on some or all of the series, this is a great time to take a new look at it now that it’s complete.

To that end, here’s a full list of the essays that make up How to Understand the Bible. Together, these essays form an excellent high-level overview of the Bible, written especially for those who are unfamiliar with Scripture. It’s also a good fit for those who are familiar with many of the details of Scripture, but who have never stepped back to consider the shape and direction of the Bible as a whole.

You can jump in at any point that interests you, but (particularly if you’re new to the Bible) it’s recommended that you start with the first few entries in the “Basics” section, since they go over some foundational questions about how to best read and understand the Bible.
