Bible Inferences

September 29, 2023

(A series of articles on the Bible and details it provides, but doesn't necessarily spell out.)

Reading the Bible is an adventure every time you open it. History, Tragedy, Hope, Love, and of course, Salvation. Every identifiable literary category can be found, and the amazing thing is that it's all true (except where it specifically indicates an allegorical example is being used - e.g. "Parables"). While there are a lifetime of issues to focus on, one issue that has fascinated me are the inferences.

So much information is given, but yet there is much that is not the real focus. Many times this is because the Bible wishes to impart specific information, while at the same time leaving out details not necessary to impart the primary lesson. Many of these specifics were, at the time, more clear to those who first heard it because they understood the context - much of which has been lost in history. This sometimes serves to deny the casual reader deeper contextual understanding, while at the same time imparting the primary information the text was meant to convey. This may seem like a contradiction, but it is really not. As I said, it's an adventure.

What follows are some of the particulars the Bible has not specifically focused on, yet enough information is given that we may infer some things which may also be true. This is not an attempt to add or subtract anything from what the Bible is meant to convey (See the warning in Revelation 22:19!), but to search for a deeper understanding, particularly by inferring what was actually going on "on the ground" at the time the words were written, or at the time being described by the text. In fact, many sermons are preached on this very assumption!

In other words, "given what the Bible is telling us, what would I see if my own eyes if I were there"? These are the things I think about...
