How Jesus Interpreted the Bible?

translated by: Marijana Petrović, Srećko Petrović

pages: 141-150

Abstract

The Judaism of Jesus’ day was a Torah-centric religion. To gain any hearing among his people Jesus’ teaching also had to be Torahcentric. Thus it was necessary, not only from his own conviction of the Law as the word of God and of himself as the fulfilment of that Law but also from practical considerations, that our Lord show by his teachings as well as by his acts that his message and his messianic person stood in continuity with and in fulfilment of Israel’s ancient word from God. It is in this frame of reference that one finds the meaning of Jesus’ interpretation of his Bible.
