How to Interpret Scripture: Jesus and the Apostles' View of the Bible

The way we see and understand the origin and nature of scripture impacts the rose that the Bible plays in our lives as individuals and corporately as believers. According to the apostle, Peter and many of the writers of scripture, the interpretation of the divinely revealed word of God is not a matter of our own opinions.


The Holy Spirit moved the writers to relay these books of information from God, and therefore without the Holy Spirit, it is impossible to grasp or retain the true meaning conveyed in the Scriptures. The only way to please God and be granted the communion with the Holy Spirit is through faith.


Unfortunately in this postmodern age, society has turned the Bible into a document that instead of being God's view of humanity, has become humanity's view of God. Let's follow Jesus and the apostles; understanding, in contrast to the misconceptions of uninspired humans whose assumptions lead only to skepticism and doubt about the Word of God.
