An Hour Glass Through Time

An Hourglass through Time gives us a view of biblical interpretation as it should be viewed, from our time to theirs, applying it to today after we understand how it was viewed then. It is all based on the biblical interpretation model of seeing how the scriptures were received by the original biblical audience then building a bridge for relevance to the contemporary audience. The biggest mistake we make in our Christian walks is to think God’s words evolve and mean something different as time goes on; it is simply applied differently as time goes on and as our circumstances change. This process is done over and over as society and time marches on. When we look at biblical texts as we are looking through an hourglass, we grasp the word differently and with a fresh perspective, not necessarily a different one.
