Session 2 Top of Form Bottom of Form Session 2 Session 2 Topic: Contexts — Now and Then “Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past.” Deuteronomy 32:5 (NIV) This session, we move into looking at the context of the scriptural passage. The context of the passage determines everything, but how do we use the context to determine and understand the meaning of the passage, the chapter, and the book? Furthermore, we need to be aware of what our own context is as we evaluate and interpret Scripture. Topic Outcomes: Upon completion of the learning assignments and activities, students will be able to answer the following questions: Why is the reader’s context important to take into consideration when interpreting Scripture? What are the different contexts that must be taken into account as you interpret Scripture? What are some of the tools available to assist in biblical interpretation?
