All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable  for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in  righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished  unto all good works. (2 Tim 3:16)

Study to shew  thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,  rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Tim 2:15)

To  start with you need the word of truth: the Authorized (King James)  Version.

Secondly, you must study all of it to fully  understand God and His will.

Thirdly, you must  rightly divide it to obtain correct doctrine for the church.

The Bible is a book of progressive revelations.

What is revealed to one person or group at any time does not  necessarily apply to another person or group at another time.

It is important to know the order in which the books are  written and to whom they are written.

Most of the  Bible is written to and about the children of Israel, or the house of  Israel.

Only a few books are written about and to  the church which is His body.

God’s dealings with  Israel are examples for the church to learn from.

Some things that are omitted speak as loudly as  what is written.

Paul is the chosen apostle to the Gentiles and to the church,  which is His body.

Seven of Paul’s  epistles were written before the mystery of the church was  revealed: 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2  Corinthians, Romans, Galatians, and Hebrews

Seven of  Paul’s epistles were written after the mystery of the church was  revealed: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Titus,  Philemon, 1 & 2 Timothy

Matthew, Mark, and  Luke were written during the Acts period to Israel.

James, Jude, 1 & 2 Peter, 1, 2 & 3 John were  written to Israel during the Acts period.

John wrote  the book of Revelation near the end of the first century to  Israel.

John wrote his gospel at the end of the  first century to all men alike.
