The proper goal of reading our Bibles isn’t to get it right; it’s to love. Thinking deeply about theology and how to interpret the Bible is important, but love matters more.

If love can change God’s mind and Jesus changes the meaning of the Bible because of love, we should be open to the same. Perhaps love should change our minds and our beliefs. Perhaps love should change how we read the Bible.
There are hundreds of ways to interpret the Bible, let’s make sure all interpretations lead us to love.

If we are going to follow Jesus in how we read our Bible, we would be wise to adopt his filter: love.

You can just read his book, you can just complete this video series, or you can do both! They are complementary to each other, but not intended to be purchased together or work hand-in hand. 


Our heart is for people to approach this study in community. Grab a few friends and hop on Zoom or meet together outside (whatever safely works for you)!
