TO UNDERSTAND HOLY SCRIPTURE
Possibly it has happened to you that you try to read the Bible, but suddenly you realize that you do not understand anything, then the question arises, how to understand the Bible? Why don't I understand the Bible?
The basis for understanding the Bible is that you should not read it like any other book. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness (2Tim 3, 16). Whether you read personally or join the Church Bible group, a prayer before reading Holy Scripture will help you a lot, for example:
Lord Jesus open my ears to your word. May I read and listen to your voice and meditate on your teachings, awaken my soul and my intelligence so that your word penetrates my heart, and I can savor and understand it. Amen.
Any questions you have when reading the Scriptures, you can clarify them with a priest, we will gladly help you.
