Interpreting the Bible

Quoted from James Alision:

"Jesus is the living, active hermeneutical principle who is the Creator, contemporary with and prior to the texts of Scripture. These only come alive when YHWH who is our victim, is heard by us and his interpretation is spoken through us as words which abide in us. Only thus do we break out of going round and round in circles, fooling ourselves, rather than allowing ourselves to be broken open and spoken to by the same One who spoke to Moses and gives us the living criteria by which to recognise his living dwelling places."
