Public reading sham

“Until I come, give attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching.” (1 Timothy 4:13, NASB)

You may not have noticed, but the vast majority of Christians are woefully unfamiliar with the Bible’s narratives and speeches

Note how many times “read” is paired with NOT or NEVER

If people are not even engaging in the public reading of scripture in their own languag, dare we imagine that they understand what the Hebrew and Greek originals actually say? Some basics are not basic at all.
