We encounter Bible words such as “resurrection,” “the Kingdom of God,” “Passover,” “antichrist,” or words seemingly as simple and straightforward as “believe,” “faith,” “salvation,” or even “marriage,” but how can we be most certain of sound understanding and correct application to our lives?
There is one place to turn: the rest of the scriptures. Yes, scripture is its own best interpreter. “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.” Psalm 36:9
We must examine what the Bible has to say as a whole, looking at the various genres in which scripture is presented to us, including narrative, poetry, wisdom, prophecy, the gospels, the epistles, and apocalypse. The various genres of scripture present God’s unified revelation; therefore, we must let scripture interpret scripture.
So, in Christianity 3-D, we will encounter God’s Word in its various genres, allowing scripture to interpret itself, teaching us to understand and apply it correctly. Hence, the purpose of Christianity 3-D: Doctrine – Learn it! Discernment – Understand it! Discipleship – Live it!
