Going deeper

Jeff Weddle considers how easy it is to take information out of context when using a concordance:
I have a plan to write a concordance that includes context. This plan has one fatal flaw: it’s impossible.

Instead, I urge everyone to just go ahead and read the Bible. Know the context by knowing the Book inside and out. When you use a concordance, don’t stop with your handy phrase; look it up to make sure it actually means what it seems to say in that phrase.
That sounds like a good method.
