John Wesley: plain reading

Saturday, September 29, 2012
    Feast of Michael & All Angels
    And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, [Jesus] explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
    —Luke 24:27 (NIV)
    The general rule of interpreting Scripture is this: the literal sense of every text is to be taken, if it be not contrary to some other texts. But in that case, the obscure text is to be interpreted by those which speak more plainly.
    ... John Wesley (1703-1791), The Letters of the Rev. John Wesley, v. III, The Epworth Press, 1931, p. 129 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, increase my understanding of Your word.
