Introduction

Asdf
Illustration
Those friends who always talk about themselves.
Joke: Enough about me, let’s talk about you! What do you think of me?
Even when they’re not talking about them, it’s really still about them.

Review

Exegesis vs. Eisegesis
Exegesis = Letting the text speak for itself
From the Greek preposition - ek (out)
Extracting the objective meaning out of the text.
Eisegesis
From the Greek preposition - eis (in)
Imposing the reader’s meaning into the text.
Infusing my meaning into the text

POWER - Walk In Their Shoes

Avoid the common temptation to make the text all about me, and jumping to application.

Illustration
Those friends who always talk about themselves. They won’t let you get a word in edgewise.
They’re the kind of friends that you could set the phone down and come back 10 minutes later and they wouldn’t know you were gone, and you wouldn’t really have missed anything.
Joke: Enough about me, let’s talk about you! What do you think of me?
Even when they’re not talking about themselves, it’s really still about them.
If we’re not careful, some of us want to make the text all about ourselves, and we can’t stop to think about anyone else.
Now, is it wrong to want to apply the Bible to our personal lives? No, of course not, that’s the ultimate goal!
But, if we become so fixated on personal application that we can’t stop to first think about what the text meant to the original author and audience, we’re missing out big, and we might even come to conclusions that are unfair to the author at best, and completely wrong or even heretical at worst.
