Today I read the following comment on a blog:
“… it’s clear that she doesn’t believe that the NT should be allowed to interpret the OT”.
Now that comment makes me ask:
On what authority do we apply any means of “interpreting” scripture? Does scripture tell us it needs to be interpreted?
And why shouldn’t we build our understanding of the “NT” upon the foundational revelation given in the “OT” and recognise that the New is fulfilment and culmination of the “Old” instead of doing that in reverse?
Why shouldn’t we address scripture in GOD’s order and not in a way determined by man?
