        Romans directly speaks to the body of Christ therefore that is the book that speaks most directly to me in my opinion.

          More and more I think Revelation should be only rarely focused on.

            Romans is the letter that lays the foundation for the Body of Christ. It is the letter by which all other writings are to be evaluated concerning the Gospel that Jesus gave Paul for the church. I consider all things in the light of Romans.

                Funny how threads morph.

                  Luke-Acts. They belong together, so I hope that gets me off the hook for mentioning two If I had to choose among those two, I would choose the gospel of Luke.
                  "By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." (Luke 1:78-79)

                  The Light Eternal, breaking through,
                  the world to gleam anew;
                  His beams have pierced the core of night,
                  He makes us children of the light.

                  -Martin Luther

                    Seriously.
                    When I was a teen I made it my mission to "decode" the whole thing, especially after my dad suggested that many of the images (horses shooting fire and burning sulfur from their mouths, to name one) could be modern technology described using a very limited vocabulary.

                    ...as I've gotten older, I've realized that no one has all the answers, which unfortunately doesn't prevent squabbling among Christians who think this or that part "obviously" means what they say it means.

                    I'm not sure if I'd say a particular book of the Bible "speaks" to me more than others, but in dealing with people on TOL God keeps bringing me back to James 1:19-20.

                      Interesting choice. What makes you choose that?

                        I agree with Knight and Ghost.....Romans is the hub.

                        Concerning the Revelation of Christ thru John, one can only understand it in light of the whole of scripture, especially GOD's plans for Israel as distinct from the Church.
                        Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD[YHVH], that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
                        Jer 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he[the Branch] shall be called, THE LORD[YHVH] OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

                          I agree. I just think trying to decode and figure out Revelation with all the obscure imagery, etc. and figuring out who the anti-Christ is, etc. just creates confusion and strife. Forget the End Times and focus on the here and now.



                          And I know you were just answering the daily topic but...I also enjoy James.

                              I'm gonna be original here and say Romans. An in depth study of Romans brought me to Christ(I used to say back to Christ, but I don't believe I was saved until said study), and Romans is where I have my brain workouts!

                              Also, 1st Corinthians is amazing...

                              **edit: and 1 John!

                              **edit to that edit- and Psalms.
                              Trust those that seek the truth, but doubt those that say they have found it.
