October 20, 2015 – Faith & Religion: How Do We Read Sacred Text?
Season 8, Episode 16
On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and how to read and understand sacred texts. Every religious tradition has sacred writings. And some of the biggest battles by people of faith are around these texts. The Bible says… OR – It’s right there clearly in the Torah… OR – I’ve heard or read in the Quran. People are constantly quoting their own or other people’s religious texts and then giving a definitive answer about what they mean. So, how do we determine the meaning of religious texts? And why do people often have such wildly different interpretations? Are scripture texts just a way for religious extremists and fanatics to prove their point? How do we understand and interpret Scripture? That conversation is available right here on this podcast of Friends Talking Faith.
