The excitement of seeing that they can study the Word without the aid of secondary sources is invigorating. I happened again this morning. At the end of the four plus hours the men had charts of 2 Peter that captured what they saw in the book, and frankly are as good, no better than any commentary they could use. Why? Because it is their work.
One of the guys said it at the end of our time together, “I used to just read the commentaries, I see nowI can do this myself.” He was pumped. That is good.
The key now is that they continue to use the tools they were given this morning on the rest of the books in their Bibles.
