Textual Criticism and a Two-House Perspective
Paul simply explains why Textual Criticism is important…Truth! ARE THESES THINGS SO?
Sifting through the leaven!!! When the Apostles and disciples of Paul’s era searched the Scriptures, they did not have to deal with centuries upon centuries of leaven, in the form of translations, doctrines, and secular interpretations. They dealt with the Greek as they knew and understood it; as well as, the Hebrew and Aramaic.
Textual Criticism is no easy task!!! While the discipline of textual criticism is necessary today, due to translations, doctrines, and secular interpretations, it exposes the difficulty in meeting Paul’s admonition of Acts 17. It requires us to study even more diligently in order to sift through the leaven and return to a 1st Century understanding of the Scriptures. The Two-House Israel perspective was the 1st Century understanding of Scripture; as well as the foundation of all the prophets of Scripture concerning the Kingdom of Israel and the Fallen Tabernacle of David.
Why is TextCrit important?Acts 17:10-11
The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.
