The proper context for interpreting the Bible is the context of the biblical writers— the context that produced the Bible. 1 Every other context is alien to the biblical writers and, therefore, to the Bible. Yet there is a pervasive tendency in the believing Church to filter the Bible through creeds, confessions, and denominational preferences.
