I’m sure you noticed that this question often results in a variety of answers, sometimes answers that even contradict each other! Now there is certainly nothing wrong with verses in the Bible having personal significance – i.e., favorite Bible verses, verses that helped you through a tough time, etc. But is there something wrong with Bible verses having a personal meaning or interpretation? And most importantly, do the Scriptures in God’s Word have precise and objective meaning that do not depend on individual interpretation? Let us begin by examining the Words of Jesus as we contemplate these important questions: “And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, ‘Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?’ 26 And He said to him, ‘What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?’ 27 And he answered, ‘You shall love the lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.’ 28 And He said to him, ‘You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.’” – Luke 10:25-28 (emphasis added) In v.26, notice Jesus’ question: “How does it (the Law of Moses) read to you?” Doesn’t this question sound like “What does this Scripture mean to you?”, or “What’s your interpretation?” And yet, Jesus was not asking for a personal meaning or interpretation as we see in v.28. Jesus’ response makes this clear when He said, “You have answered correctly.” In other words, “you gave the correct answer to the question.” “You understand the correct interpretation of this Scripture.” Jesus didn’t say, “I like your perspective on this Scripture,” or “That’s an interesting way of looking at it.” Jesus’ focus was on understanding Scripture correctly, not on a personal meaning or interpretation of Scripture. And so, Jesus demonstrates that Scripture does have a correct and objective understanding that can be grasped. Elsewhere, Jesus taught that Scripture cannot contradict itself (John 10:35), which also reveals that Scripture is harmonious and precise in meaning. The Bible itself affirms that Scripture must be understood and explained accurately (Acts 18:25-26; 2 Tim. 2:15). In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon expresses the nature of the Bible’s objective meaning because he was careful “to write words of truth correctly” in the Bible (Ecc. 12:10). Likewise, since the Bible’s meaning can be “distorted” (2 Pet. 3:16) and “adulterated” (2 Cor. 4:2) by men, then the Bible must have a clear and pure meaning to begin with. Accordingly, God’s Word declares that we thankfully can read and understand the true meaning of Scripture as God intends it (2 Cor. 1:13; Eph. 3:3-4). But how can we do this? The Bible itself teaches us that we can carefully examine Scripture daily to understand its true meaning and intent (Acts 17:11). While it can take time to uncover the true meaning behind a Bible verse or passage, the more we examine Scripture the more we learn of Scripture’s true meaning. So instead of asking others “What’s your interpretation?”, let us ask God to do as David asked: “Give me understand according to Your Word” (Ps. 119:169b).
