It’s Monday morning. I’m sitting in Tim Horton’s with a cup of coffee and reading Daniel chapter 1.
I’ve cut and pasted this chapter in Microsoft Word and created a file for my Daniel studies and meditation.
Today… now… I’m just reading ch. 1, and writing any thoughts or questions I have about it.
My method is:
1. Read the chapter first.
2. Read the chapter, making notes, writing insights and questions.
3. Go to the commentary by Tremper Longman (The NIV Application Commentary).
4. Add additional insights from the commentary (there will, I am certain, be many!).
5. Decide which rabbit trails to follow to gain deeper understanding of the text.
