How to accurately interpret the Bible? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
We can say the Bible is the Word of God. We can read it cover to cover and memorize passages. But do we interpret the Bible correctly as the Author, God, intended?
The apostle Paul told Timothy, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
First, ask God that His Spirit would help you understand His Word. Then read an entire book to discover the main theme and the historical context. Finally, make sure your interpretation of a given passage is consistent with the rest of Scripture and respected past and present Bible teachers as well.
