In selecting real estate, the rule is “Location, Location, Location!” In interpreting the Bible, the rule is “Context, Context, Context!” Interpretation is not merely a fancy or a luxury; it is a necessity. Interpretation may not always be a conscious act, but it is always happening when we read the Bible--or anything else for that matter. And fundamental to responsible interpretation is knowledge of and respect for the context of each of the biblical writings. Joel Ilten will begin with the principal challenges of faithful interpretation. Session 2 outlines three major periods of Biblical interpretation and shows how it has changed over the centuries. Session 3 addresses the question of why people interpret the Bible differently.
