I have the Esv version of the Lutheran Study Bible and I am having a difficult time figuring out how I should read it because of all the notes. Then again, I never really understood how a study Bible is supposed to be read in the first place. Am I supposed to read a chapter and then read all the study notes that accompany the verse or do I only read the study notes when I need clarification of a verse? I also would like to journal at the same time, but when I was in school I never really learned how to take notes, so I did without. So I get discouraged when trying to journal because my notes just don't seem like notes and are instead a jumble of words that don't mean anything. Ugh... I need help.
