Never Risk-Free

My former professor Dan Ebert writes in his introduction to Wisdom Christology (15-16) that wisdom and folly both call out to us. Ebert observes that “this should serve as a reminder that reflecting on the doctrine of Christ is never risk-free. One is always in danger of misinterpreting the biblical material or, having interpreted well, of denying the confession of life.” This goes quite well with my series on Samson where I argued recently that word leads to action (hearing to doing; word to bread). To put it in Professor Ebert’s category: Interpretation leads to embodiment of truth.
