How Do We Know Which Interpretation Is Right? – Derek Thomas


There are many conflicting and mutually exclusive interpretations of Scripture. Skeptics point to this as a reason to reject Christianity’s truth claims, and many Christians who accept the truth of Scripture wonder how they are to know which interpretation is right. In this lecture, Dr. Derek Thomas provides Christians with guidelines to assist them in understanding not only why there are so many interpretations, but also how they are to evaluate and weigh conflicting interpretations.

Christ has redeemed us to be a light that directs others to Him. Fulfilling this call requires us to be able to deal with the most difficult questions asked about the Christian faith. If we are unprepared for the darkness around us, it will be harder to counter it with the truth of God’s Word.

In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2010 National Conference, Alistair Begg, Michael Horton, Steven J. Lawson, John MacArthur, Albert Mohler, Burk Parsons, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Derek Thomas address some of the most difficult questions that we face as Christians and endeavor to offer biblical answers to assure us and to help us defend the truths of the Christian faith. This conference also features a special mini-conference on Christian communication in a hyper-social world.
