4.  What determines the balance of the lessons is the number of times that topic
and corresponding section of Old Testament is quoted in the New Testament.

5.  Since the major goal of this Bible study is to quickly cull all the interpretations
of the Old Testament that come with the quotes in the New Testament, then you
are simultaneously studying both Old and New Testaments.  {You will be
surprised when you carefully look at these quotes and their interpretations in the
New Testament, for sometimes the interpretation is actually back there in the Old

6.  What this for you is to accumulate a large list of proper ways to interpret the
Bible, on every subject and book, so that you can heed the Bible admonition of
the ASPI interpretation, that is "no scripture is of any private interpretation".  This,
in short, is the Authorized Semi-Public Interpretation.
