In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, Nancy Gutherie sat down with our own Dr. Vern Poythress to talk through his book, Reading the Word of God in the Presence of God: A Handbook for Biblical Interpretation. Over the course of the conversation, Dr. Poythress explains steps for sound interpretation as well as mistakes Bible teachers often make. He offers keys to using a commentary wisely and to identifying analogies and types of Christ in the Old Testament.
