The ultimate purpose of reading God’s word to the people was so that they would understand God’s Law. Reading the Word distinctly and explaining it in simplicity are still great needs in the church today. The best way to study Scriptures and to get an understanding of God, His purposes, and His will for our lives is by expounding on every verse of Scripture from beginning to end. Please open your Bible to Nehemiah chapter eight, verse six, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola concludes his study of this chapter.
