Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

On May 12, 2012, Dr. Robert Plummer instructed Immersion attendees on how to Rightly Divide the Word of Truth. Using heavy scripture references and engaging examples, Dr. Plummer guides leaders and students of God's Word through these questions:

  1. Why is sound biblical interpretation so important and how do I practice it?
  2. What is my goal when reading the Bible?
  3. How do I understand and apply the different types of literature in the Bible?

If you desire to be a student of the Word, or if you are a teacher of Holy Scripture, you will find this study to be instructive and very helpful. Dr. Plummer is a professor of New Testament Interpretation at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and author of 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible.
