Email Tips: Creating Cross References

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, March 31st, 2012 .

As you study the Bible from the perspective of the mystery of Christ revealed first to Paul you begin to see connections that no other Bible or commentary has in print.

You will need to create your own cross references where none existed and reevaluate references that are no longer valid as they wrongly connect verses that need divided.

Popular cross references love to cross reference 1 Cor 12:13 with Pentecost in Acts 2. We know better.

Another troublesome example may be with the “law of liberty” in James which most printed Bibles will reference to one of Paul’s epistles.

Knowing that James was written to the remnant of Israel under the law we know that a better reference would be to Psalm 119:44-45.

For His glory,
