When you pick up a science textbook, a book on economic theory or the latest Harry Potter book, you approach them all differently. You wouldn’t read a science textbook as a work of pure fiction (unless you read Genesis CH 1-3 as literal of course). So, let’s admit that when we pick up the scriptures to read, we also come to the text with a particular way of reading that affects what we imagine the text to be saying. How the text functions matters! How then should we read the text and how shouldn’t we? Let’s wrestle with that together.
