On this week’s episode:

  • Rick and Rob record on the road trip back from Myrtle Beach!
  • They both get a great deal at Aldi.
  • The guys dig into the mailbag and discuss how to read the Bible (big thanks to Mike Spiriro for sending in the question).

They walk through the following steps:

First, we must understand the genre of the text:

  • Law
  • History
  • Wisdom
  • Poetry
  • Prophecy/Apocalyptic
  • Gospel
  • Letters/Epistles

Second, we must understand the context of the passage (“3 Horizons” approach):

  • 1st Horizon: Literary Context
  • 2nd Horizon: Historical Context
  • 3rd Horizon: Canonical Context
