We began a new semester this week, in which I’m teaching Romans, 1 Corinthians, and New Testament Biblical Theology–I’m seriously living the dream!
With every new semester, I think of this prayer for Bible study from the BCP. I used it to begin our NT Biblical Theology class last night.
Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
