My Desire

My desire is to approach these portions of Scripture, etc in a manner which the Jewish men and women call “Midrash.” Midrash can be defined as an ancient approach to Scripture interpretation that employs imaginative tools such as story, metaphor, argument and wordplay to search out the meaning of the text. It is a hermeneutic that understands that God gave us His Word not just as a text to be studied like a history book or a science text, but it is meant to be interacted with as one would face-to-face with another person. In that thought we search and find, we get to know bits and pieces and something will be revealed.
