This book is about helping the general reader and student of the teachings of the Bible to be more receptive to the the context in which the stories contained within were written and who they were written for.
Mr. Errico describes in simplistic terms and examples how the Bible can be understood differently by those looking at it two thousand years removed. He presents his seven steps to studying the Bible in its proper context. Drawing heavily upon the teachings of George Lamsa, he presents other possibilities for understanding some idiomatic expressions contained in the Bible.
I can't say that I agree with everything that is contained within this text. I think other scenarios are more probable, but will fairly allow for the possibility.
I do reccommend this book, not necessarily for the interpretations contained within, but for the good advice on how to approach the Bible's teachings and how to frame the study so as not to ignore the proper context.
I learned a lot. I read this going. "oh my God, that makes perfect sense now! That's what Jesus really meant."
It's more of a spiritual seekers book than one for "strict" Christians who are not into new ideas and interpretations on the bible. Although after reading this you feel like you can't imagine how anyone ever got along without these ideas because they make so much sense.
The author stresses that he avoided as much as possible any theological implications and interpretations of the Bible according to any given denomination. In other words, the issue at hand cannot be completely free of sections which are more or less challenging to one or the other variation of belief. Most will find this book highly rewarding, as this book is a key to unlock the mother tongue of Jesus and the immediate followers and authors of the Bible.
Personally, as a mystic, I did know about the constructed nature of the concepts of hell and the devil and that Adam and Eve are about the lost ONEness. However, the specifics getting unveiled is of tremendous value. However, if you have gotten fond of those concepts, this book may be a bit too challenging. Of course everyone is free not to take the author's words for 100% true, I have a couple of reservations/variated approaches as well. Naturally.Read more ›
