 Miracles were certainly a part of certain periods in Bible times. What about today? Are miracles still taking place. There are some very important subjects that surround this area of discussion that are often misunderstood. Andrews will answer such questions as does God step in and solve every problem if we are faithful? Does the Bible provide absolutes or guarantees in this age of imperfect humanity? Are miracles still happening today? Is faith healing Scriptural? Is speaking in tongues evidence of true Christianity? Is snake handling biblical? How are we to understand the indwelling of the Holy Spirit? The work of the Holy Spirit. Andrews offers his readers very straightforward, biblically accurate explanations for these difficult questions. If any have discussed such questions, without a doubt, they will be very interested in the Bible’s answers in this easy to read publication.

 John 8:31-32 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word , you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free .”

Delving into the basics of biblical interpretation, Edward D. Andrews has provided a complete hands-on guide to understanding what the author meant by the words that he used from the conservative grammatical-historical perspective. He teaches how to study the Bible on a deep, scholarly level, yet making it understandable to all. He has sought to provide the very best tool for interpreting the Word of God. This includes clarification of technical terms, answers to every facet of biblical interpretation, and defense of the inerrancy and divine inspiration of Scripture.

Andrews realizes that the importance of digging deeper in our understanding of the Bible, for defending our faith from modern day misguided scholarship. Andrews gives the reader easy and memorable principles and methods to follow for producing an accurate explanation that comes out of, not what many read into the biblical text. The principal procedure within is to define, explain, offer many examples, and give illustrations, to help the reader fully grasp the grammatical-historical approach. Finally, Andrews provides the next generation of Christians, a fresh new Bible reading/study program. This program will not only help the reader know the Bible, but also be able to interpret it, explain it, defend it, and use it when sharing their faith.

The information herein is based on the disciples coming to Jesus privately, saying, “Tell us, (1) when will these things be, and (2) what will be the sign of your coming, and (3) of the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3)
These questions refer to the end of an age, which was referred to in Matthew 24:1-2,1 Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when his disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to him. 2 And he said to them, “Do you not see all these things? [the temple buildings] Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.”
In Matthew 24:3-28, Jesus is referring to the end of the Jewish age, which was to culminate in 66-70 C.E., with the desolation and destruction of Jerusalem and its temple. The disciples’ questions were based on a presumption the end of the temple to them, equaled the end of the age, encompassing Christ’s return, the judgment of the wicked and the setting up of his kingdom. Verses 3-28 are Jesus answering their question. In his words, he does address what will lead up to the end of the Jewish age, but what about the end of wicked humankind and the ruler of the world, the age (era) of Satan, and his second coming, Jesus’ kingdom, and his thousand year reign. We have to understand the end of the Jewish age as well, because all prophecy has a meaning to those who hear it, which will help us understand if it could be applicable to us.
In conservative, evangelical, grammatical-historical interpretation, an author has only one referent for his words, as two referents would result in two meanings. Our position is that there is only one meaning of what an author meant by his words. This may sound complex now, but it will be unfolded more in later chapters, in a very easy to understand way.
In chapters 1 and 2, we must address why Jesus is saying there would be an end of the Jewish age. In chapter 3, we will take a deep look at the signs that establish the great tribulation is closing in, and when is it time to flee. In chapter 4, we will go over the signs of the end of the Jewish age. In chapter 5, we will walk through the events leading up to the end of the Jewish age from 66 – 70 C.E. In chapter 6, we will cover the second coming of Jesus where the reader will get the answers as to whether verses 3-28 apply to his second coming. We will close out with chapter 7, and how we should understand the signs, and how we do not want to be led astray, just as Jesus warned even some of the chosen ones would be misled. We will also address what comes after the end.
