2 Reading into the Text Essay


After reading chapter 11 in Grasping God’s Word, write a 1 to 2-page essay (APA style page format) using this prompt:

Can you think of an instance when you or someone else, in an attempt to find the “deep spiritual meaning” in a biblical passage has actually “read into” that passage a meaning that probably wasn’t intended by the author? Relate that experience. Why is this a problem and how can we avoid it?
