I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment According to Scripture, how should we interpret Scripture?
@swasheck - I am not fully committed to the order I placed these secondary bullets. I think I need to make better use of the original languages myself. The good studious people on this site are helping me in this regard. I love that this site has this emphasis. It distinguishes itself apart from other sites because of it. I am not aware of another site that has as many quality qeustions and answers. I would prefer my own posts to be closed in order to maintain the serious exegesis attempts on this site, if that were required. My answer is not intended to downplay the value of serious study.

@Jas3.1 - noted. I am usually tapping away on my iPhone and have to come back for clean up later. Good question it forced me to think.

comment What are the strict set of rules followed by sensus plenior?
(+1) If you don't mind I plan to post an answer from an opposing 'label' that shows 'acceptance' of many of the ideas imbedded in your answer. But I have to wait till I properly understand more about SP, in a month or two. Thanks for sharing some of the orthodox results you have obtained. I find the figurative, though far less certain to me, often warms my heart more. My mind allows my heart a little more freedom than some, but I think personality also plays into exegesis and we must learn to accept different parts of the body gifted with different gifts.

I enjoyed reading your post a lot and had to read it a few times to understand your method, but I can't buy into the outcomes. Blue-King, Scarlet-Judge, Purple-Prophet. Only the alter was covered in purple, everything else blue. (When they moved the tabernacle) If anything I would have connected the altar with the priestly office. Cheers.
