If you believe parables have only one point; texts have only one big idea; that every text means only what it meant to it’s human author; you dislike systematic theology & think that moderns are the only ones who read texts well you might be a biblicist. Don’t be a biblicist. 1/5
By biblicist I mean that you may be like Arius or Socinius or you may be drinking at the fountain of 17th cent enlightenment; 18th cent rationalism; 19th cent liberalism or 20th cent neo-evangelicalism. Don’t be like Arius. 2/5
Consider how Jesus modeled the interpretation of the parables (eg the Sower); how the New Testament mines OT texts (like Ps. 2 talks of eternal generation & its demonstration at the resurrection; and John 1 echoes Proverbs 8) 3/5
how Peter explains that the prophets inquired into the significance of what they had written; and how the apostle Paul explains that it takes the whole church to grasp the love of God in Christ. 4/5
Holy Scripture is God’s book about God as He reveals Himself; to be single, simple & stable; to be Father, Son & Spirit; as He is both in Himself & in the economy. He speaks to the church which reads it ‘together with all the saints’ - no chronological snobbery there! 5/5
