Understanding Scriptures Through Cross References

  • By Kim Bellm-Palmer
So many times over the course of my life I found myself being drawn to the prophecies in the bible. As I watched the events of our time unfolding I felt an urgency to understand how these events were explained in the bible. Every time I was drawn to the book of Revelation, a book that I knew was trying to tell us what we would need to know in the times in which we currently live. Then every time, without fail, I would not be able to understand what I was reading, and every time I would find myself trying to follow the cross-references given for the verses I was reading. But that would just lead me to search out references of the references until I found myself surfing the bible and getting even more confused. Then each time I would simply give up and stop searching. Finally, after the failed attempts of understanding what the scriptures were trying to tell me, I started a project for myself that hopefully would help me stay on track of the answers I instinctively knew were there. So, for my own use, I took the Book of Revelation apart verse by verse. Then I found several suggested cross-references from several translations. Then I brought it all together with the cross-references indented under the verse that was crossed. Then as I read it I did not find myself bible surfing. I found that the Book of Revelation was starting to make sense. Then I found a translation of the bible that was unique from all the countless others. It was translated by a man who understood Hebrew idioms. He added emphasis marks to enhance, as well as clarify the scriptures. When I took that version and incorporated my format of cross-referencing, I found the scriptures opening right up in my mind. It all was so clear that I could not imagine why I had been having so much trouble. The bible came alive and actually made sense. I became so excited that I just had to make this simple form available to others. So here it is. Now you can find the scriptures open up for you just as they did for me.
