The Bible and the Holy Church Fathers – Johanna Manley (Preview)

Remember

“We do not read the Bible as isolated individuals, interpreting it solely by the light of our private understanding, or in terms of current theories about source, form or redaction criticism. We read it as members of the Church, in communion with others throughout the ages. The final criterion for our interpretation of Scripture is the mind of the Church. And this means keeping constantly in view how the meaning of Scripture is explained and applied in Holy Tradition: that is to say, how the Bible is understood by the Fathers, and the saints, and how it is used in liturgical worship.”

(Metropolitan Kallistos, The Orthodox Way, p. 110)

Father Raphael mentioned in his talk that the way to live with understanding of the Bible is:

•    hearing God speaking to us
•    being challenged by the words of Christ and the teachings of the apostles,
•    striving to bring our lives into conformity with the will of God,
•    learning how we are to conduct ourselves
•    nourishing our Life in Christ.
