More on the Jesus Hermeneutic

Cross-BibleIf I simply let the Bible text be my hermeneutical guide for understanding Scripture, I can come up with a view of God that’s conflicted, schizophrenic, and two-faced: an angry, retributive, genocidal, legalistic God of the Law on the one side, and the gracious, forgiving, restorative, unconditionally loving Father of the Jesus on the other.

But if I let Jesus be my hermeneutical guide for interpreting all Scripture, I end up with a gracious, forgiving, restorative, unconditionally loving Father. Something to think about.

If you know Me, you know the Father. Rest assured now; you know Him and have seen Him.  (John 14:7 VOICE)

About Mel Wild

God's favorite (and so are you), a son and a father, happily married to the same beautiful woman for 36 years. We have three incredible adult children. My passion is pursuing the Father's heart in Christ and giving it away to others. My favorite pastime is being iconoclastic and trailblazing the depths of God's grace. I'm also senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in Wisconsin.
