Interpreting Sacred Texts

 

Scripture is a transcript of our dialogue with the divine. Its pages reflect the light of G-d, but are not the source of it. Its words, long ago recorded and faithfully copied, persist in a world of evolving context, challenging our ability to construe their truest meaning. Compassionate insight, reverence, and rigour are required of those who would interpret it well.
