I teach youth (grades 7-12) at our home church. One of the things I find is that the more mature kids are interested in the “history” and “historical implications” of certain passages. As we mature, we should ask the Holy Spirit to reveal deeper meanings to us when we read and study the Bible. However, if I try to explain to less mature students the political reasonings of Paul regarding Jews, Romans and Gentiles at the time he authored the book of Romans, I’ll lose them completely! They need to know the basics of salvation to be SAVED first, not the complete historical implications and political agendas of 2000 years ago. Its important for theologians, Bible scholars, and those well versed in the Bible to understand that we all start with “baby steps” and the “milk of the word” until we can digest the meatier meanings of God’s Word.
