Interpreting Scriptures

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” ~ 2nd Timothy 2:15

To interpret the scriptures without their correct historical context and a proper hermeneutic is to take an eisegesis approach (what one thinks its saying) to the bible that often ends up with man’s own ideas, personal applications and often very skewed assumptions of what the bible was really saying and thus results in the spreading of many false teachings being taught and reproduced at times even at a systematic theological level.

Can you imagine that? People paying big bucks to be indoctrinated, ordained and sent out with the wrong interprertations of someone who had no proper exegesis.

On the other hand, to study the bible with a proper hermeneutic and to hear the scriptures being taught in their correct historical context along with their right chronological ordering brings a much clearer exegesis approach (what the bible was actually saying) to the scriptures that not only brings greater clarity to these inspired texts but the clearer lense will as well even help ones own personal application of them in their own life in this present day and age.

In His Love, Pastor Scott
