Reading the Bible through a progressive lens is so much fun!
The 4 layers of our ‘surplus of meaning’ and 3 surprises from the Gospel of Luke.
We ask the text 4 Layers of Questions:
1 What would the original audience have heard?
2 What has the text come to mean in history?
3 What do we do with the text now? (application)
4 What is the most the this text can mean? (future horizon)
Three themes that emerged in Luke:
1 Jesus uses ‘Dog Whistles’
2 the Bible reads differently for those on top or the underside
3 Parables are not allegory
