The Bible - How to Understand it!
Richard H Sedliacik & William F Dankenbring  

   In a recent article in Tomorrow's World, you were exhorted to "Read the Book."
   But perhaps you have tried to "read the Book" in the past. Perhaps you stumbled over chapters dealing with difficult prophecies, complicated symbols, genealogies, a great variety of subjects all mixed together. Perhaps you lost interest in reading the Book! Perhaps you finally gave up and said to yourself, "I just can't understand the Bible!"
   Could that be you? It was Mrs. V. I. D. of Essex, Ontario:

   After reading the article in the March-April issue of TOMORROW'S WORLD entitled "Read the Book'' by David Jon Hill, I decided to write this letter. About six years ago I decided to read the Book from cover to cover for myself. When I had finished, I was quite puzzled about a lot of what I had read. Soon after I had finished reading the Bible, I happened to hear Mr. Armstrong's radio program and heard his offer of a free Bible Correspondence Course. I feel that I am finally understanding what I am reading in the Bible. I hope you have many requests for this Course because I am sure everyone who takes it will understand the Bible.
   Did you know that your lack of understanding — that your frustration and CONFUSION — were foretold long ago? Prophesied Isaiah, "Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine?... For precept must be upon precept.... line upon line;... here a little, and there a little,... that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken" (Isaiah 28:9, 10, 13).
   That's the way the Bible is written. Not all the truth on any one subject is found in any one place. To properly UNDERSTAND the Word of God, you must put together ALL the scriptures on a particular subject! "Here a little, and there a little!" And only when all the scriptures are put together can you really see what the Bible says.
   But most people today are like the Ethiopian eunuch in Philip's day. When they read the Bible, or Bible prophecies for the future, they are at a loss to understand them. It is as if they were reading some foreign language. It's "Greek" to them!
   Philip heard the eunuch reading from the book of Isaiah and asked him, "DO you really understand what you are reading?" (Acts 8:30, Moffatt.) '"Why, how can I possibly understand it,' said the eunuch, 'unless someone puts me on the right track?'" (Verse 31.)
   That's why we offer the Ambassador College Correspondence Course! It is unique. It is designed to lead the student into an in-depth study of the Bible itself — not the words of men about it, not our words, but the BIBLE ITSELF!
   This Course makes the meaning of the Bible COME ALIVE! It proves the Bible is NOT out-of-date in the space age! It shows how the Bible is the FOUNDATION of all knowledge. It explains why millions have totally misunderstood the Bible — why even most ministers are in ignorance of "the Book."
   This Course unfolds the meaning of prophecies written for our day. It makes the teachings of the Bible easy to grasp and understand, as more than 165,000 enthusiastic students around the world have discovered! Such subjects as heaven, hell, the millennium, the judgment, the coming of Christ, the CAUSE of world ills, the very PURPOSE of life and many, many other subjects relevant to our lives here and now are all made absolutely plain. Never has there been anything like it!
   How much is the Ambassador College Correspondence Course worth? It is priceless. But you can have it absolutely free of charge: Ambassador College Correspondence Course
