Favorite Bible Teachers, Lecture Series, and Studies

Understanding God’s word, the Bible, does not come naturally to our human minds. Sometimes we need guidance, as did the Ethiopian eunuch who asked Philip the Evangelist to explain to him the scroll of Isaiah (Acts 8:31-32).

The best teacher and guide we have is the Holy Spirit. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit has also gifted some believers with the skill of teaching others how to study God’s word.

I’ve listed a few of my favorite Bible teachers below. The people on this list are human and, thereby, subject to human error. I don’t agree with everything they teach, but I have benefited enough from their work to recommend them. Always check any teachings you hear against the Bible, and ask God to reveal the truth to you.
