Reading more Scripture …

Does how we view the Scriptures influence what we expect when we come to read the Scriptures? Are the Scriptures “propositional truths” God wants us to know but has hidden them in stories we must read, exegete in order to understand and apply? Are the Scriptures the story of God’s activity in the world securing for himself a people so that as we read the story, the Spirit of God “reveals” those truths by which we faithfully follow the example of those following God through the ages?

Just wrestling with thoughts prompted by Grenz and Franke.
