Understanding the Epistles

Jan 18, 2022    Bryan Fojtasek

The vast majority of the New Testament is letters written from an Apostle like Peter or Paul to a church or a particular individual. These letters contain some of the most important teachings we have about the significance of Jesus's life, death and resurrection. If we want to understand the truth of God's Word, we need to know how to read these letters in the best possible way.

In this video, Bryan talks about the importance of historical context (understanding the specific circumstances that prompted each letter) and literary context--reading the Bible in paragraphs instead of soundbites.
