Discerning Intention

In today's video, Revd. Dr. David Wenham discusses how defending the Truth of scripture doesn't always require an ultra-literalistic interpretation.He sympathizes with those who fear that liberal theology gives away too much of the bible and notes that there are parts of Genesis to be taken literally, but he insists that those who seek the true meaning of scripture must respect the intention of the authors, whether we are reading the Gospels, parables, or Genesis. As he says, "Sometimes the most literal interpretation is not always the right interpretation."
