Context Changes Everything

According to the latest research, 58% of people wish they read the Bible more often. But they struggle to do so because the Bible can be challenging to understand. This leaves people feeling confused, discouraged, and unmotivated to try. Which is devastating, because everyone should be able to understand the most powerful and transformational story in history.

The confusion occurs when we read the Bible through the lens of our own context without first understanding the Bible through the lens of its context. Context is everything, and yet most haven’t been taught how to engage the Bible’s context. Only when we first understand what it meant for the people back then can we truly understand and apply what it means for us today.

We have forgotten that we read the Bible as foreigners, as visitors who have traveled not only to a new geography, but to a new century. We are literary tourists who are deeply in need of a guide. GARY M. BURGE

In helping tens of thousands of people do so over the last fifteen years, we want to guide and empower you to see the Bible anew and engage it in its original context of history, culture, geography, visual settings, language, and literary design. And don’t worry. We’ll do so in a way that anyone can understand. The goal is to make the Bible easier to understand, not more difficult. But let’s not stop there. Knowledge without transformation is hollow. We’ll also provide you with helpful ways to walk out the Bible truths in your life. By engaging the Text (Bible) in context and walking it out, we believe the Bible will come alive in ways you haven’t experienced before, and your passion for the Biblical Story, and for living out your own story more intentionally, will soar!

Joe Jackson

“Despite having several degrees in biblical studies, I was never exposed to engaging the Bible in context. And then I encountered the teachings of Walking The Text, and they literally changed my entire approach to the Bible. I now understand the Bible more fully and see a far deeper relevance for our modern-day lives.”

Kristi McLelland

“I grew up being told to read the Bible, but was never taught how to read it. Walking The Text has dramatically enhanced my ability to read and see the Bible in its original context, and my understanding of the Bible and the heart of God has forever been enriched.”

Connor Reavy

“I never had a clue how exhilarating and applicable the Bible was until I was exposed to the teachings of Walking The Text. Understanding the Bible in context ignited a passion within me to read the Bible more faithfully and engage my relationship with God more intentionally. I’ve never been more spiritually alive.”
