what the Bible says about Bible study

The truth of what the Bible says about Bible study doesn't have to be hard to discover. Yet, many believe it's too difficult. Unfortunately, a litany of other books and a chorus of false teachers is fuel for their apprehension. Church leaders boast about their extensive libraries and their theological degrees. The implication is that Bible study is only for the "professionals".
