I’ve rediscovered a radical method of biblical interpretation that I must confess I like very much. I like its simplicity. I like the limitations it places on interpretation. I even like and respect its origin.
It’s found in I Corinthians 4:6, and apparently was taught by Paul and/or Apollos:
“Do not go beyond what is written.”
Yet I’m drawn to the simplicity of “the saying” in I Corinthians 4:6.
(As if it isn’t challenging enough just to go with what is written!)
