We have found that the task of doing theology is an essential post in the fence we continue to build for the mysteries of our faith. It is for everyone’s benefit that we know why we do the searching, the proper handling and the accurate exposition. There are many treasures that we discover from the Scriptures and they may become mere symbols, but coming to the sacred texts in the same manner as one comes to the Living Word can be expected to result in rest.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
There is room enough in the final exposition for diversity of emphasis, but there is no fit for more than one interpretation. The discovery is either of faith or it misses the mark. The interpretation is married to the Living God who was crucified or it is not kingdom-helpful.
