Why this Web site? - - -

This Christian Web site site started with adult Bible study lessons on the Psalms a few years ago.  Now it includes information about many topics related to the Bible and how the Bible may guide our lives.  More detailed information about the site, its publisher, etc., may be found at About.

Reader feedback - suggestons, comments, etc. - is encouraged in the spirit of what C.S. Lewis wrote in his Reflections on the Psalms: I am comparing notes, not presuming to instruct.  The idea behind this site is to share information to both inform and to prompt the reader to investigate the Scripture further for greater depth than is provide here and to test the material that is provided here.  Remember how St. Paul rejoiced over the diligence with which his audience in Berea studied the Scriptures about what he had taught.  They must have provided feedback.Enthusiastic Bible studier
    Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so. (Acts 17:11/ESV)

PsalmStudy is a noncommercial, Christian site, a public service, provided because of the publisher's interest in sharing what he is learning about the Scriptures as they point to their fulfillment in Jesus the Messiah.  Nothing is sold here.  The scope of this site is not comprehensive.  PsalmStudyprovides the Web a niche of information not generally found in the same form elsewhere.  Feedback , comments, and questions are welcome at e-mail contact: 

Why study the Bible? - - -

We study the Bible for the reasons given below.

Jesus tells us to teach the whole world to observe all that He commanded us.  We must first study the Bible to learn what He has commanded us and then pass it on to others.  And Jesus came and said to them --
    All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:18-20/ESV)

Jesus tells us that His Word will endure forever.  That makes it imperative for us to know His Word if we are to live with Him forever. --
    Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. (Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, and Luke 21:33/ESV)

Jesus tells us that we study the Bible to learn how all Scripture witnesses to Him.  We must first study the Bible to learn who He is, to believe in (i.e., be committed to) Him, and to know and abide in Him. --
    You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. (John 5: 39-40/ESV)

Jesus tells us that His Law will endure until the completion of His mission in the end times.  We must study to learn what He means by that to know what we are to obey. --
    For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. (Matthew 5:18/ESV)

Jesus commands us to teach the Law.  We must study to learn His commands to know what we are to obey. --
    Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:19/ESV)

A Prayer for Bible Study - - -

A cross

Lord, please open our hearts and minds as we read, study, and discuss your Holy Word, that we do so intelligently, joyfully, and with understanding.  Please grant us the understanding that You want us to have, and help us to learn what You want us to learn and how to apply it in our daily lives.  We ask this in Your name, Jesus.  Amen.

I could not have prepared the material on this site without the Lord's guidance who gave me the encouragement through prayer and through my wife, Patty, and her many hours of providing substantial help with both content and editing.
