In our continuing investigation into sound Bible study, we now get to the level of interpretation of phrases and/or verses of the Bible. We investigate what is needed to be able to move from the original context to our current context in a sound way. At the same time we need to understand some of the history of interpretation to be able to fully comprehend what the authors of the Apostolic Scriptures are trying to explain to us. How did Y’Shua use these techniques in His teachings? How is it different from the techniques that Paul, the Pharisee, used in his writings. Come test your skills in identifying these techniques!
We are living in the age of confusion! There is so much information available, an ocean of knowledge, you can easily drown in. Most everyone has easy access to the internet and books. This abundance of knowledge sometimes makes it difficult to discern truth from error. We also find people returning to their Hebrew roots. Here again we find an abundance of information, teachings and teachers. The question is: how do you know the truth from error? Error will lead to deception and losing the true way. What does the Scripture say about strange doctrine and how to identify it?
