What influences your interpretation of Scripture? What is the origin of the particular interpretation you hold? Are you familiar with alternative interpretations? How would you defend your interpretation against others?
Although apologists are usually the ones asking these questions, anyone seeking to interpret Scripture should do the same. We think of ourselves as unbiased, logical people, but reading others’ opinions reveals whether we truly are. Such reading also informs our discussions about Scripture, making us better interpreters and better conversationalists, evangelists, and preachers.
Each part of Scripture deserves close examination, but Genesis holds a special place in the canon. It’s a rich, complex book that’s referenced throughout the Bible and that serves as a theological backdrop for much of Scripture. As such, it will shape how you interpret the Bible.
We all wrestle with questions about the origins of the world, the first sin, and where we came from. Genesis tells the story of humanity and God—our story.
