three questions x 2

Three questions to ask when studying a passage of Scripture:

1) What did it mean to them at that time? (historical, linguistic, contextual backgrounds)

2) What does it mean for all time? (doctrine, place in the history of redemption)

3) What does it mean to us now? (application, faith, worship, obedience, etc.)

Three questions to address when preaching that passage:

1) What does it mean? (state and explain the principle)

2) What does it look like? (illustrate)

3) What do I do with it? (apply)
