Interpretation

To avoid doing weird, or irresponsible, things with the Bible we need to know how to interpret it well. The “rules” of hermeneutics will not remove all debate but they will enable us to be far better skilled. It is worth taking the time to learn how to “correctly handle the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15).
