comment 1 Corinthians 13:12: “For now we see through a glass, darkly”
@Brilliant - Oh I guess if you have never been to a 'house of mirrors' at a circus or carnival you might not get it. One mirror makes you look short and fat, anothre mirror makes you look tall and thin, another makes you head fat and big fat lips, etc. Its juts a crazy warped mirror thing at carnivals in the US and other places where you get cotton candy, popcorn etc.

comment How many “layers” are there to the Scriptures?
@Jas3.1 - You could say that for simplicity, but Protestants don’t usually think of layers as it implies a hidden meaning everywhere 'all on one layer, on top of the literal'. Some verses may have a single literal truth and no more. The literal is already ‘spiritual’ as it is infallible. Sometimes this is just semantics but as I have listed, each group has there own semantics and a clearly defined 'spiritual' layer seems to be primarily the Catholic semantic. Philo of Alexandria seems to have had up to a million layers and he has heavily influenced the Catholic Church compacting them into four
