Text: Psalms 19:7-11
Rightly interpreting the Bible guards us from error, bridges the gaps between us and the biblical writers, and - most importantly - leads us to a growing knowledge and love of Jesus.
Biblical interpretation engages a process to understand the inspired human author's original meaning and applies the biblical truths to our 21st century lives.
When the Biblical writers wanted to communicate the truths of God’s revelation, God’s dealings with His people and His redemptive plan, they carefully chose words and literary forms that would best convey their meaning.
The key to understanding the content of a biblical text is observation. Paying attention to sentence structure, verbs, conjunctions, and figures of speech will help reveal the meaning of a passage.
