That Scripture leads into all truth, that Scripture leads out of error, that Scripture achieves the purposes God foreordained for it – these are typical, essential assumptions that underlie all exegesis in the Jewish and Christian traditions up until the period of the Enlightenment. Since the Enlightenment, a few strands of Judaism and Christianity no longer hold to these assumptions. Still, for most believers, in public and private devotion miqra or reading Scripture is about “hearing the word of God with reverence and proclaiming it with faith.” I wonder, though, if some evangelical teachers have forgotten that a high view of Scripture entails precisely that. In this post, I express my bewilderment at recent posts by Michael Heiser and C. Michael Patton, characterized in my view by a strange form of scholasticism. I will offer another approach to the dilemmas they address.
