“Context” by Flame

Context – Flame – lyrics
Speaking:
uh-uh-uh-uh-uh yo what’s up with you man
O what’s up wit you bruh
Yeah I noticed you readin’ your Bible and everything. That’s raw
Ah amen, bruh
But I just wanna know have you ever heard of hermeneutics?
Hermeneutics?
Yea hermeneutics.
Naw what’s that, mayne?
Well that’s just simply “the art and science of biblical interpretation”
O, ok, ok
And it’s very beneficial if you learn how to do it you know what I’m sayin’

The first task of the interpreter, that’s you
Is called exegesis
Extra Jesus?
Naw i said exegesis, man
It’s a Latin word don’t be scurred
Matter fact I laughed when I first heard it too
It’s spelled e-x-e-g-e-s-i-s
Guaranteed you learn this process and you’ll be blessed
Exegesis is the careful systematic
Study of Scripture

For the Christian this should be a habit
But to discover the original intended meaning of the author to its audience is exegeting
But to do this man you need some tools
So let me recommend a couple of things you should use a’ight! Cool.
First man you need this book it’s called a commentary and it helps you to further look into some Essential things that you need to check in order for you to properly interpret the text

With this skill this should keep you from heresy
And keep you from goin’ through theological therapy
The words of God will change your life if you keep that text in its context

You need some more books,
I know it’s getting scary
But you need some definitions get a Bible dictionary
To go without these tools you can’t afford it
That’s why you need this book called a concordance
And every time you start to think this is too much to do
I recommend you reflect on 2nd Timothy 2 and 15 and you will see what I mean
Simply because the serpent is lurking to glean those who don’t read
And those who don’t study to keep on lock on its treasure from unlockin’ the pleasure
Cause’ God’s words are lovely
That’s why we handle it as precious as pearls to let our exegetical work reflect to the world in accuracy Hopin’ that you’re happy to see the very words God breathed handled accurately
So many now take text out of context
And come up with mess and more nonsense

With this skill this should keep you from heresy
And keep you from goin’ through theological therapy
The words of God will change your life if you keep that text in its context

What you don’t wanna do is called eisegesis
Icy Jesus?
Naw I said eisegesis, man.
You a silly dude, its Latin, too
And that’s just the act of when you adding to
Or the process of readin’ one’s own meaning into the text and that’s just eisegeting
Don’t fret I know these words are new and phrases too but it’s cool if you go back to school
Its spelled e-i-s-e-g-e-s-i-s
Guaranteed you learn this process and God will be vexed (you don’t wanna do that)
A text can never mean what it never meant before to its original readers or authors so
If you run into a difficult passage and you know the Bible never contradicts itself then
Turn the pages to a parallel passage and just let the Scriptures interpret itself

With this skill this should keep you from heresy
And keep you from goin’ through theological therapy
The words of God will change your life if you keep that text in its context
