Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Effective Bible study begins with a clear understanding of the Bible as an inspired whole instead of sixty-six disjointed books. Exploring the Scriptures gives the serious student a panoramic view of God's Word that provides a firm foundation for more detailed study of books, passages, and themes of the Bible.
Each book of Scripture is presented through a brief introduction, a concise outline, and a comprehensive summary of the book's content. Included also are special chapters dealing with the major divisions of Scripture and thirty-five maps and charts to help with visualization of important Bible content.
