Interpretation

Consider a few questions to stimulate your thinking. Is it really all that important, for example, as to how a pharmacist interprets a prescription? What could be the result of an incorrect hermeneutic in this realm? Would you trust your life and health to a druggist who said, “Interpretation isn’t all that important”?
In Luke 10:25, 26 we find, “And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying ‘Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What is your READING of it?'”(emphasis mine — mb). When Jesus asked, “What is your reading of it?” , He was concerned with the lawyer’s interpretation.
Yes, it is very important as to how a person interprets the Word of God. His life (2 Peter 1:3), his worship (John 4:24), and his salvation (Romans 1:16) are dependent upon such (Ezra 7:10).
Think about it.
