When We Gather Together: Reading Scripture Publicly

Worship 1222 BLOG

We read Scripture publicly because of the instruction to do so in 1 Timothy 4:13, and the example in Nehemiah 8. Additionally, the people of God have traditionally listened to Scripture because copies of the Bible were expensive and not as prevalent as they are today. They listened for hours, were instructed on the meaning, and many had the entire Bible set to memory.
