Fun With Word Studies

21 Feb

A couple of weeks ago in an evening Bible study, I said I thought word studies were a bit overrated as a study method. My concern was that in doing word studies, we often miss the forest for the trees. We get a good grip on the range of meaning of this word or that word but we can be prone to fix our attention on the word and miss the flow of thought in the passage. This article from George Guthrie hits at the core of what I was addressing in my comments with humor and grace.
