I've been listening to some podcasts of Wayne Grudem's method for Biblical interpretation. He goes through 4 steps/categories. I'd be interested to hear  what your best resource is for each of his 4 categories: 1. Word studies 2. Passage Structure 3. Bible Cross Reference Resource 4. Cultural Context Helps Thanks for responding in advance!

Best Bible Cross Reference is the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge. It's best gotten as part of a package. Perhaps the most valuable tool you can own. I still have a print copy which is no longer being offered.

good one for passage structure is the lexham clausal outlines.  came in my base package.

this resources is excellent for outlining all of those methods with both Scriptural and Logos-oriented examples.  I like that it also deals with the spiritual aspect of exegesis while being very scholarly.

In addition to the excellent advice given, I suggest spending time in God's Word at the feet of Jesus Christ outside of any theological overlay such as dispensation or reformed theology.

Thanks all!

I personally use the word study guide and sense lexicon for word studies, the high definition O & N Testament for structure, the old Treasury for cross references, and don't have many context resources. Was looking to see if there were any big ones in any category that I'm missing out on.

If anyone else has any good ones, feel free to post them here!

My seminary drilled me on Zuck's Basic Bible Interpretation. It's pretty good if you want an introductory resource.
