AN  EXAMPLE  OF  DEEP  BIBLE  STUDY:  I  USED  TO  STUDY  THIS  WAY  ALL  THROUGH  THE  1960s  AS  A  YOUNG  MAN. YES  IT  TAKES  HOURS  AND  HOURS  USING  A  BIBLE  CONCORDANCE  AND  NAVE'S  TOPICAL  BIBLE. THIS  IS  DIGGING  IN  YOUR  TEETH  AND  CHEWING  REAL  HARD  -  GETTING  ALL  THE  VERSES  ON  ANY  ONE  TOPIC.


FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT:   ALL  YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT "WORKS" BUT DID NOT STUDY.
