098: Read the Text for Yourself!

Jul 18, 2019 | Apologetics, Podcast

What’s the best way to know exactly what truths God meant to convey in his Word? Read the text!

It’s easy in a world full of scholarly opinion to rest on the laurels of those you trust as faithful interpreters, but scholars have competing opinions, and you should be ready and able to adjudicate between them.

By having thought through the context, historical setting, and genre of a given passage, you are much more likely to gain an accurate understanding of what a text meant to its original readers, and, therefore, its objective meaning.

Here’s a suggested way of remembering this truth: The Text is where the Truth is found.

Listen in to this week’s episode as I develop that thought and give some practical application on understanding truths from the Bible.
