I have been drawn back to one of my favorite books on biblical interpretation, Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart’s How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth. In the past I shared ten principles for interpreting Old Testament narratives from their book, but this time I want to highlight nine errors that are commonly made when interpreting biblical narratives, also from their book…
The book of Ecclesiastes is one of the most misunderstood books in the Hebrew Bible. The author of the book, called Qohelet, who many believe is King Solomon, appears to contradict many of the teachings of the other books of the Bible. Ecclesiastes is placed, in the Christian Old Testament, in the wisdom literature section, just after the book of Proverbs. But Qohelet appears to dismiss the teachings of Proverbs and the overall pursuit of wisdom as meaningless!

One of the most common accusations I hear from skeptics is that the Bible is full of errors and contradictions. How do you and I, as Christians who believe the Bible is without error, deal with these claims?
