Walk with the Word Psalm 119 Study Guide
D. E. Isom
Even within most books dedicated to the subject of hermeneutics and associated overall approaches, Psalm 119 as the definitive word on the Word found within the Word is largely ignored. This is not to say that any or all of those approaches are wrong, but rather to suggest that they may not be the best starting point. Psalm 119 is not a whole, contained system in and of itself when it comes to God's Word, but it is, unquestionably, the foundational starting point. There is a reason it should grab our attention as the largest chapter in the whole Bible; everything else proceeds from here. What follows is a complete inductive study on the whole of Psalm 119 for each of its twenty-two, eight verse lessons synchronized to the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, each dedicated to an individual aspect of the working of God's Word.
These studies are not intended to simply convey information as a result of the author's research or presentation, but for participants to actively seek and realize for themselves that which needs to be put into practice from God's Word. This is why the overall format of each lesson comes in the form of questions which prod exploration and examination of the text. The question and answer format facilitates a deeper personal discussion which is actually an exercise in discipleship to properly handle Scripture in parallel with self-examination.
The psalmist is actually providing twenty-two teachings set in real life as examples of the working of Scripture, or at least how it should be allowed to work, on a very practical level. The examples and accompanying discussion are never theoretical, clinical, nor in any way some kind of distant academic conjecture. The purpose behind the whole collective Word of God is not solely limited to just information, instruction, nor even inspiration, but has as its ideal goal incarnation-that is, taking the Word of God to the level of the heart so as to result not only in changed living, but changed relationships. It is to become an actual part of us.
Also available is "The Walk with the Word Psalm 119 Study Guide (Small Group/Seminar Leader Edition)" to present this material in eight consecutive lessons, and the accompanying "The Walk with the Word Psalm 119 Study Guide Workbook" in which participants can keep notes in parallel to each study. This title is available both in print and as a Kindle eBook.
