Discerning the Main Claim of a Passage (How to Read the Bible, Ep. 9)

Have you ever read a passage from the Bible and wondered, what was the point of all that? Maybe you pick up some themes and ideas here or there from a passage, but you’re unsure how it all fits together. Or maybe you’ve never thought to consider how a passage all fits together. In this episode, Kirk and Dan get back into their series on how to read the Bible, asking, after we’ve made all of our initial observations on a passage (e.g., tone, context, structure), then what? They talk about the need for understanding a passage’s overall claim, message, or point.
