What's the Interpretation? First in a Series
I am proposing a new series. I am going to post a verse or two and pose a question that can only be answered by your interpretation of the text.
Please do not just answer the question. You must back up your answer with a well-thought out discourse. It doesn't need to be long or loaded with Greek, grammar, or what-have-you, but it must support your answer!
Tell us the reasons from context, your analogy of faith, logic, reasoning, and/or through corroborating verses why you consider your position to be true.
OK. The way in which this first attempt goes will determine whether or not if I will periodically continue to follow in this series.
1) Read the verse
2) Answer the question
3) Support your answer by a well-reasoned discourse
42 Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Do these rulers possess eternal life or not?
