I am really passionate about the proper understanding of scripture. I think that so many problems in our lives and in our churches could be avoided if we had a proper understanding of the Bible. I spoke recently about the importance of Bible interpretation and how we apply the bible to our lives.
Today, I made an overview chart that just works as a guideline to see how different parts of the Bible apply today.
Contrary to popular belief, there are some parts of the bible that are merely history and do not apply to us today. Over the next few days, I will post more in depth charts with more information on how to know when the Bible is talking about us (commands or promises) and when it is talking about a different people or a different time. For more information on this, please see this post about the Dispensations of Time.
This is just a general overview. The coming charts will give more details. When in doubt, check a passage against the New Testament, and remember that any commands or promises made under the Law to the Jews do not apply to us today.
