“But that’s just your interpretation…”

“The next time someone says, ‘That’s just your interpretation,’ have the person read the verse and ask him how he might interpret it differently. Ask him to give reasons why he would choose one interpretation over another. Ask him if his interpretation matches what the author intended to say. The question is not, ‘Whose interpretation is this?’ but ‘Is this interpretation correct?’” Todd Friel

2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

  1. There is no such thing as private interpretation. God had one intended meaning. We must discover it. Thankfully, we have the Holy Spirit as our Guide.

  2. That’s true and no one interprets the scripture at all. Since no understanding comes to us by interpretation but by revelation. No one understands anything unless it is revealed to us. This si why all the Greek, Hebrew, English, Latin and every book on the market will never help one understand the truth of the scriptures without divine revelations.
