Enlarging Your Enquiry

The larger the context, the better the understanding.

This morning while reading (and exegeting) Scripture for an upcoming blog post, I initially focused on one small section. This section contained the one word I wanted to connect to another book of the Bible via that word. Upon reading a bit further, I noticed a stronger contextual connection I’d not perceived before. And this was in a portion of Scripture I thought I knew pretty well.

The lesson? Always read the larger context. And keep reading the Scriptures so as to allow the Spirit to illumine new things.
