Are you seeing the people in the Bible in "Their Contexts” or “Your Context”?
When reading the Bible, we are the Receptor and it is our responsibility to search for the Source’s “bundles of associations” and make sure we attach the Source’s “bundles” to the words of our Bible.
We are not solitary beings, but social ones. Our “bundles of associations” attached to our words include much more than “lexical meanings.” They include feelings, emotions, smells, tastes, sounds, appetites, desires, longings, fears and much more. We must learn as much as we can about the Source’s society as we search for the “bundles of associations” attached to his or her words.
