Last Sunday, we began a 10-part teaching series through the Core Values of Redemption Church, beginning with the doctrine of the sufficiency of scripture. However, although Scripture is sufficient, it can only equip us to the degree in which we correctly understand the truth it presents. Therefore, correct and consistent interpretation of the Bible is vital for true spiritual growth. The method of interpretation that best helps us to arrive at the author’s original intended meaning is called the literal method, also known as the grammatical-historical method. Although a passage of Scripture can have multiple applications, it can only have one true interpretation. We make it our aim to arrive at the correct interpretation, so that we can arrive at the correct application for how the truth relates to our lives.
