In this video, theologian Chris Tilling, New Testament Tutor for St Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre in London, discusses biblical genre and the relational truth of Scripture. Tilling notes that when we read the biblical text, we bring our own presuppositions and assumptions to the text (what theologians call “eisegesis”).
