It uses inclusive language 'as far as this can be done without altering passages that reflect the historical situation of ancient patriarchal culture'." Most reference Bibles don’t include all of these references at Mt 10:33. Though outdated, Aharoni's work provides the basic data for biblical geography.

Miller, Maxwell, J., A History of Ancient Israel and Judah, (Philadelphia: The Westminster Press, 1986). Hundreds of years ago, the Protestant Reformers worked out some principles which serve to guide us in interpretation, and as fences to keep us on safe ground: 1.) The Scriptures Alone: Nothing else is to be held on par with the Bible, whether in principle or in practice.� The Bible is God's written word, and is the basis for what we believe and how we should live.� (2 Tim. 3:14 - 17, Deut 17: 18 - 20, and Joshua 1:1 - 9.) 2.) Scripture Clarifies Scripture: Let the Bible interpret itself - scriptures throw light upon one another, and God does not contradict himself. 3.) Take the Natural Sense Seriously: Read the words in their context.� If the natural meaning makes sense, do not look for 'hidden' meanings.� Read poetry as poetry, and prose as prose.� Figures of speech are figures of speech.� Respect words, language, and logic. 4.) Be Open to Further Light from Scripture: We all make mistakes, so we must be open to correction. 5.) Weigh Facts of Grammar, Language, Culture and History Carefully: These facts can really help us clarify meanings, but sometimes, claimed 'facts' are not true.� Check such claims with reputable sources and authorities.� (Also, authenticate authorities, and remember that they too can make mistakes.) Over the years, scholars have developed tools which can really help us: a)� Concordances -- list where the Bible uses particular words.� Strong's �and Young's are the best. b)� Bible Dictionaries -- discuss themes, names, words, concepts and �much more.� "The New Bible Dictionary," IVP, is quite good. c)� Study Guides -- give outlines for studies on particular books of the Bible, or themes in the Bible.� Scripture Union puts ��out some good ones. d)� Commentaries -- comment on the Bible, or its books, section by �section.� Devotional ones are more personal, and Interpreter's commentaries are more technical. e)� Bible Atlases -- give the geography of the lands in which the events in the Bible happened. "I hear and I forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand." 1.) Prepare a Bible study on 2 Timothy 3:14 -17.� This will rivet the power of the Bible in your mind. 2.)�Learn to use a concordance, a Bible Dictionary, and a topical list. 3.) Begin your own programme of Bible readings, if you have not yet done so.� This is the best way to learn the Bible, and knowing is the best basis for preparing effective Bible studies - and for successful discipleship.
