Ep #487_”Who” Heals You through Scripture?

For us the Bible is a single book, but it’s really a Book of Books. The Bible is a library of books, from “biblios,” meaning books. These books were written at different times that are sometimes separated by millennia; by different authors with various writing styles, proficiencies, and personalities; to different audiences. Is it any wonder that it can be hard to read and understand?

This episode tackles the two Testaments, the genres of the Books, and the “who” of the Bible, so we have a basic understanding of how to approach each Book.

But more than that, the consistency of the Bible is one of its miracles. Part of its consistency is the “who” of the Bible. Who heals through Scripture, and who is being healed?
