Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue their Deep in Scripture study of the Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians by discussing verses 1: 3-14. (Part 1 of 4)
We all know the old phrase “can’t see the forest for the trees,” but are we guilty of it? And it can especially be a problem in Bible study. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m especially an advocate of getting to know the trees. I’ve always encouraged my sons to know how to identify trees and plants and weeds and birds and wild animals. If we know nothing about the rich details, the forest can be nothing more than a mindless blur. But especially in Bible study, too much focus on the intricate details can cause us to miss the intended beauty of the whole. This is part of what we will be discussing today on Deep In Scripture.
