20 4 Principles of Biblical Interpretation  1. Consider everything you read in its immediate context and in the context of the entire Bible.  Every false teaching comes from taking the Bible out of context.

21 4 Principles of Biblical Interpretation  Matthew 7:1–5 1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

24 4 Principles of Biblical Interpretation  2. Take the Bible ’ s words literally unless it indicates otherwise.  Matthew 13:44–46 44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. 45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

25 4 Principles of Biblical Interpretation  2. Take the Bible ’ s words literally unless it indicates otherwise.  Matthew 13:44–46 44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field.

29 4 Principles of Biblical Interpretation  3. Consider all parallel passages.  Romans 4:4–5 4 Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. 5 However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.

30 4 Principles of Biblical Interpretation  3. Consider all parallel passages.  Romans 4:4–5 4 Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. 5 However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.

31 4 Principles of Biblical Interpretation  3. Consider all parallel passages.  Galatians 2:15–16 15 “We who are Jews by birth and not ‘Gentile sinners’ 16 know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.
