Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, November 2018
The November issue of Tabletalk considers what it means for Christians to be a people of the book. Throughout the history of Christianity, the church has understood the sixty-six books of the Bible to be the infallible and inerrant Word of God, “which is contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.” As such, it is “the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him” (Westminster Shorter Catechism 2). Having received this revelation from God, the church is responsible for submitting to and rightly applying the Bible in all of life. This issue addresses the subject of hermeneutics and rules of interpretation. Further, it seeks to help Christians understand how to apply the Bible as we seek to be faithful Christians who study, meditate on, and love the Word of God.
