“It’s dangerous to feed people these tiny little snippets.” Exactly!!!!
Very good, I’ve tried to convey the understanding that the Bible is a whole, and that taking a single verse removes it from its context. Wright says it so much better than I could.
That was very nice. I really enjoyed it. I tried to teach my students to do this when reading any work of literature but it is hard for some students to grasp. Even if you memorize sections or understand a part of the text better than any other living soul it makes no difference if you don’t get the main idea as a whole. And getting the main idea of The Bible begins on the first page and, in many ways, is still being written today.
