Ground

This is one of the richest relationships in the Bible. A ground gives support or a reason for another statement. One way to think of it is that it is the ground upon which another statement is built.

Ground are factors forming a basis for action or the justification for a belief.

A ground is an argument or reason for another statement. One way to remember this is that the ground is the base upon which another statement is built.

The supporting (or grounding) statement comes after the statement it supports. When you come to a grounding statement in the Bible, ask what came before it that it supports.

Key Words

Conjunctions or connecting words are very important in the Bible because they tell us how two statements are related to each other. In this case, a grounding relationship is usually connected with for,because, or since.

For example:

Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. How do we know that Jesus loves us? For (or because) the Bible tells us so.
