The Bible in the original Hebrew and Greek is the word of God, letter for letter. The Bible is a self-contained book, his law book. God defines how He uses words and phrases in the Bible itself. He wrote the Bible in parables, and He alone can disclose the meaning of the text. He instructs man to compare spiritual things with spiritual things, all within the Bible. God's entire word to man is contained entirely from Genesis to Revelation. We do not attempt to interpret the Bible literally or apply the wisdom of man in interpretation. We come to the Bible knowing nothing and asking God to teach us what He says.
