Understanding God’s Word

July 2, 2012

Here are two links that help unpack the rich meaning of Scripture:

First, here is a piece that uses quotes from Sherlock Holmes that speak to concepts that help unlock the truth of the text. We have many great tools that help us interpret. Yet, I believe that we are all too quick to consult these tools. Rather than consult footnotes or commentaries we should spend more time wrestling with the text of the Bible itself. We end up scarfing down a bag of chips when we could have had a full gourmet meal. This article supplies tools needed to wrestle with the text.

Second, here is an interview where B.J. Stockman asks questions of Dane Ortlund about how the gospel relates to the interpretation of scripture. There is immensely helpful truth here.
