How Should Christians And Believers Interpret Bible Scriptures – Spiritual Reading.

Biblical interpretation has become a major point of contention among many believers and christians. Different sects interpret Bible scripture differently and sometimes amidst all the religious, theological and philosophical debates and arguments, the truth can fall away.

The Jewish Rabbi will have a different take with many emphazising context ,history, language, culture and tradition.

The Catholic Priests will have their stand, advocating intense meditation, research, praying the rosary and asking mother Mary for guidance etc.

Ordinary believers will suggest believing whatever the clergy and Church leaders feed them during worship and fellowship services.

Despite all the chaos and confusion that comes with this subject, I think the answer is a simple one.

How do we interpret scripture and the Bible?

By the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said the Holy Spirit would teach us all things.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. 

John 14:26

In fact after his resurrection, Jesus had to open the minds of his disciples so that they could finally understand the scriptures. Jesus is the author and finisher of the Bible.

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 

Hebrews 12:2

Trying to understand the Bible without his guidance or counsel is a waste of time and most often just leads to divisions, heresies, and wrong doctrines of men as is being evidenced in our world today by the various mis-interpretations of various scriptures.

My prayer is that the Lord will open our eyes and ears so that we can be able to hear and see his Holy Spirit who will guide our hearts in all truth.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2. through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4. perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Romans 5: 1-5
