First, theres observation: determining what the Scripture says by reading and rereading it; paying attention to words, phrases, even parts of speech and punctuation. Observation answers, What does it say? Observation leads to interpretation. Interpreting the Scripture has to do with understanding. Interpretation answers, What does it mean? Chuck Swindoll teaches you how to answer this question no matter the passage of Scripture you are studying.
