How to interpret the Bible – Chris Lane

Nice short one here.

Chris talked about 4 key areas t keep in mind when we interpret the Bible:
1 – What kind of literature is it that we are reading? (apocalyptic, wisdom, parables, poetry, history)
2 – Where are we in the story?
3 – What is the background to this text?
4 – Where is the music leading us to? Where did it come from? Where is it leading? What are the big themes?

Chris reminded us that we need to use these this so that we read the text fully in the context that it was written so that we can understand what it is saying to us in our context today.

Chris also reminded us our reading of the Bible means that we no longer look where we are and what we come from but to where we are going.

Recommended book – “How to read the Bible for all it’s worth”
