Running Chains

Back when I first started doing Bible study one of the things I did a lot was running chains.  The Bible I bought shortly after I came to Christ had side column references.  I would look at the references for the verse which I was studying and look those verses up.  Then I would look at the references for those passages and look those up.  I did that until it was obvious that the topic had changed.  I called that running chains.
Here is a simple way to extend your Bible Study...  Thoughts at DTTB.
Over the years the method has changed a bit.  After 40 years of Bible study and scripture memory, sometimes when I am studying a passage other verses or phrases that support or add to the passage I am studying come to mind.  I follow those as well as some of the side column references.

That happened this afternoon…  I was reading Isaiah 44:18 – 20 and a combination of the two approaches lead to this chain, run it with me and if you feel led, tell me what you see in the comments.

Psalm 81:12; Isaiah 6:9 – 10; 29:10; 2 Corinthians 3:14; 4:3; Romans 1:24, 26, 28; 2 Timothy 3:7

Have fun.
