Rev Tom Thorpe writes: “If you’ve had any exposure to the Bible at all, you have interpreted the stories and passages you have read or heard. Because we experience everything in this life through the filters of our own consciousness, I don’t know that it’s possible to read or hear a Bible story without interpreting it in some way.
Charles Fillmore, in his book Christian Healing, wrote that “the Bible is a very wonderful book; as man develops in spiritual understanding it reveals itself to him. . . It shows that the human organism is mind in action, rather than an aggregation of purely material functions. But above all, the Bible explains the spiritual character of man and the laws governing his relation of God. There are symbolically set forth as states of consciousness, illustrated by parables and allegories.”
In addition to teaching the basic principles of metaphysical interpretation, and exploring the metaphysical meanings behind the words and stories of the Bible, this course introduces maieutic interpretation, a method designed to give learners the tools necessary to interpret the Bible in a way that is personally meaningful to them. The term maieutic is based on the Greek word for “midwife.” As we interact with Biblical texts, we really do help birth new levels of understanding.”
