Seeing, No Hearing Patterns

Today
This afternoon I drove from Tulsa to Huntsville, TX.  Came down here to pick up my dad to bring him back to Tulsa to be with our family for Christmas.  For the past several months when I travel I have been listening to the Bible.  Today I listened to Acts once and the Gospel of John just about twice.
Seeing, NO, Hearing Patterns

Redeeming the Time
Usually I am more of a visual and kinetic learner.  However, I have learned in the last few months that when I have been studying a passage, and then listen to it, I hear things that I did not see in the overview or in the section by section analysis.

Different Perspective
Today I heard something in Acts 13 that will help me with a current project, and heard a pattern in John dealing with locations in the book that gives me a line of inquiry for the book that I had missed.  The point is that we need to immerse ourselves in the Word.  Whether we read or listen.  The more we expose ourselves to a book, the more we will observe.

  1. Repeated listening of the same book of the Bible has been one of my ways to immerse myself into and grasp the contents of the text.
    ESV Hear the Word Audio Bible: The Bible for Life -- is my tool.
