Abstract
This project was birthed out of the need to provide lay persons with a solid foundation for interpreting Scripture. Many approach the Bible as a collection of verses with little to no connection and thereby formulate misunderstandings of God's work and world. This project surveys the history of interpretation to gain perspective and learn from the past. Then, it examines scholarly resources and those intended for lay persons to discover the topics which need to be addressed. A number of basic principles of Bible study are discussed in order to form a foundational course to help lay people learn to interpret Scripture.
