Accurately Speaking and Teaching the Word of Truth
The verse II Tim 2:15 from the King James Version (KJV) has been commonly (and almost solely) used to admonish people to study the scriptures. In this paper, we will see the meaning is far greater.

A familiar and fascinating scripture in the Bible is found at II Timothy 2:15.
2Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
This verse from the King James Version (KJV) has been commonly (and almost solely) used to admonish people to study the scriptures. This builds a mind picture of using concordances, lexicons, Greek interlinears, learning Hebrew basics, etc. so that we can study the scriptures, rightly dissect them and thus stand approved before God.
