In Lesson One we learned the first thing we do to to study God's Word is to

Read God's Word

In Lesson Two we learned from Isaiah 28:9-10, that we must

Put Precept upon precept,

Line upon line,

Here a little and there a little.

We also learned we must have a tool to help us find like words in Scriptures, and that tool is the

Strong's Concordance

In Lesson Three, you will need the Strong's Concordance to find the Scriptures asked for using the word   L I G H T .


Explanation of Lesson:  The Dictionary in the Strong's Concordance shows you all the different times one given word is used in the Bible. In this lesson you will see how to put like words in Scriptures together for personal Bible Study.

Researching like words using the Strong's Concordance and your Bible will enable you to find God's hidden truths and apply them to your Christian walk. This is the concept found in Isaiah 28:9-10 where you learn precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little.

When you have completed this lesson, you will have gained the skill to study any word in the Bible line upon line, here a little and there a little.
