Why Should Christians Study History?

Should You and I study and know History?

I guess the question is why shouldn't we?

As it stands today most Christians know little about the Bible or perhaps where they are even located on the map. Knowledge of history is almost total (or so it seems).

With that in mind I will be presenting for the next several months articles and posts about Biblical history and History in general. I hope this further edifies you toward a better appreciation of God's world.



"It’s the old maxim, whether it’s church history or other history: those who refuse to study history are doomed to repeat it.

Virtually every heresy we face today is a rehash of some heresy that the church has already had to deal with in history. God has preserved His church through all the centuries, and we hope that by now we’ve learned something.

Why did Luke write the book of Acts? He wrote his Gospel, but he also wrote the early history of the Christian church, which was very important for the church to understand its origins, its mission, and its doctrine." from website: Ligonier.org
