Let’s Keep it in Context
This week’s podcast is all about context. Along with understanding presuppositions, context is the most important element is interpreting and understanding any spoken or written discourse. This applies to literature, law, scientific writing, politics and for sure, the Bible.
OK, I realize this isn’t really a “sexy” topic… If I were to announce a series of posts on Revelation, or that there was a weekend seminar on Revelation, large numbers of people would put it on their calendars because Revelation is “sexy,” at least in the metaphoric sense. “Context” is more a subject that I would need to beg you to listen to…
Fine, so I’m begging.
Dear reader, if you can grasp both presuppositions and context, you can recognize and avoid most errors in Biblical understanding.
That’s kind of important, wouldn’t you agree? So, welcome aboard!
