The Bible as interpreter

“The word of God is not interpreted—it interprets! ... The direction of the flow between interpreter and text that has dominated modern biblical criticism from its inception is reversed.... It is not the text that requires interpretation, but the interpreter.”

—Robert W. Funk, Language, Hermeneutic and the Word of God (New York: Harper, 1966), pp. 11–12.
