Compare Scripture with Scripture

How Should We Read the Bible?

This is Ken Ham, and we are on a mission to strengthen the global church with God’s Word.


When we read the Bible, we need to remember that God didn’t tell us everything about Himself all at once. We don’t usually find one chapter that fully deals with a topic. Instead, we have to compare Scripture with Scripture.

That is why it is important not to neglect any part of the Bible. Often Christians will ignore the Old Testament and only focus on the New Testament. But we can’t properly understand the New Testament without knowing its foundation in the Old. And we can’t properly understand the Old Testament without the New Testament. You need both!

When we read and interpret the Bible, we need to be careful to look at Scripture as a whole. Yes, we need to make sure that we always compare Scripture with Scripture!
