The Foundational Principle for

Properly Interpreting THE BIBLE

2 Timothy 2:15 (ASV)

Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth.

Greek word literally means:

“to cut in a straight line”

- cutting a straight furrow in a field

- cutting a road in a straight direction

Guide the word of truth along a straight path, holding it on a straight course.
