The Reading4Hope app makes learning how to read Scripture well, accessible to all. Or, if you re looking for a fast an easy way to lead a discussion on a passage of Scripture, this is the app you ll want giving you questions that allow for the scholar and new believer alike to meaningfully enter the dialogue together. Rather than giving the reader a list of rules of reading to memorize (the traditional how to read the Bible textbook/class approach); and rather than giving the reader questions intentionally designed around the content of a particular passage (the traditional Bible study workbook approach for example, a workbook through 1 John); the Reading4Hope app immerses you into sound Bible reading principles by asking creative questions. In other words, instead of memorizing the principle, this resource does some of that labor for you until, Lord willing, the right kind of questions become intuitive. The idea is: immersion to create instinct.
How it works:
Each time a Reading4Hope app user reads a passage of Scripture, we give them a series of four questions that will walk them into in sound Bible reading principles. The first is always an observation question, training them what types of things to look for or think about when they come to a passage of Scripture. The second is an interpretation question, encouraging the reader to summarize the main message of the author. The third is also about interpretation, but is toward understanding the ultimate meaning of the passage in light of the larger story of Scripture that centers on God rebuilding His kingdom through the work of His Son, Jesus Christ. The fourth question is always an application question, leading the reading into the varying angles of applying their life to the message of the text.
To keep it interesting, the questions are randomized so that there are 10,560 possible combinations.
#1 Observation How do you think the original audience felt after hearing this passage (surprised, angered, excited, etc.)?
#2a Interpretation (original context) If you were to communicate the truth of this passage through a painting what would it look like?
#2b Interpretation in light of the bigger story How does the main idea of this passage (answer from #2) direct us to the Christ and/or His work in redemption?
#3 Application What two people can you pray this passage for today, and what will you pray for them?
