Jailed American pastor pens heartbreaking birthday letter to daughter

By Lisa Daftari Published September 25, 2013 FoxNews.com

As his wife is in New York to fight for his freedom, a letter American pastor Saeed Abedini recently managed to get out of his Iranian jail cell and to his seven-year-old daughter for her birthday has come to light.

He calls Rebekka his “little hero” and expresses heartbreak about not seeing her grow. Rebekka’s mom, Naghmeh, is unable to travel with their two young kids to Iran for fear she might also be arrested, but with the Iranian delegation in New York for the UN, she is pressing his case. This week, she traveled to New York and was able to hand-deliver a letter Monday to the delegation of Iran’s new president asking for her husband’s quick release.

How to Study the Bible In-Depth

Hermeneutics. Eisogesis. Exegesis Those may sound intimidating, but they're part of anyone's toolbox for doing an in-depth study of the Bible for a greater knowledge of God's Word.

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true." –Acts 17:11 (NIV)

Were the Bereans of Acts 17 one of the earliest examples of an in-depth Christian Bible study group? Probably not in the sense of what we consider in-depth Bible study today, but they did indeed dig into God's Word deeply, examining it and making sure that what they read corresponded to the message Paul shared with them. Today, of course, we have a lot more in the way of resources to help us study the Bible in great depth. Not only do we have access to sophisticated Bible software, we also have the Internet and its many resources, not to mention almost 2,000 years of Christian history and wisdom we can incorporate into our studies.

How to study the Bible

Approaching Bible study may seem like a daunting task. But God intends for us to study His Word, no matter where we are in our Christian walk and growth.

The question, "How do I study the Bible?" is not just for new Christians. Anyone interested in studying the Bible will benefit from thinking about how to study it. In 2 Timothy 2:15, the Apostle Paul wrote, "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth" (NIV). The Greek phrase translated "correctly handle" (orthotomeo) also means to "guide on a straight path." As we study the Bible, it's important we do our best to stay on the straight path when it comes to interpreting and understanding it.
