You have seen that you need to know the Bible.  Now is the time to take action.

The first step is to determine how well you wish to know a particular verse or passage:

  • paraphrase
  • word-perfect (if so, also which Bible translation)

You also need to determine how well you wish to know the reference:

  • where in the Bible is not that important to you
  • what book it is in is good enough
  • you want to know what book and chapter it is in
  • you want the book, chapter, and verse(s)

I personally am content with paraphrases; however, I like to know the book, chapter, and verse(s).  However, you may have a different preference.

You also need to study the Bible.  Don't count on Google or a concordance to do your dirty work for you. I normally recommend reading the Bible for 15 minutes a day.  Although an hour a day would be better, normally that lasts about two or three days.

Bible knowledge is not instant.  However, Rome wasn't built in a day, either.
