THE PRINCIPLE OF INTERPRETATION BY PROPER USE OF CROSS REFERENCES

THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS
I PETER 1:19

but with precious blood, as of a lamb without spot, even the blood of Christ:

I Peter is a study of the doctrine of Redemption
Christological.
Practical exhortation and comfort for the daily needs of believers.
1 Peter 19
Peter designates the Lord as the Lamb without spot (inherent blame) and blemish (external defilement).

The Complete Biblical Library The New Testament Study Bible 16 Volume 1986. I had the first volumes as they came out over a year and a half in 1986. Outstanding without comparison.

"The ransom price was the "precious" (timio, most valuable) blood of Christ. As a lamb brought to the slaughter (Isaiah 53:7), "without spot" (aspilou, unstained), fitting the requirements of the Paschal Lamb (see Exodus 12:5). The "Lamb of God" (John 1:29,36) must be perfect. Any lesser sacrifice would be unacceptable (see Leviticus 22:20)" First Peter 1:19

THEOLOGICAL


Theological interpretation is characterized by:
  • an extension of the grammatical meaning to discover its fuller theological significance
  • a synoptic view of all the Biblical data on given subject.

The justification for doctrinal hermeneutics is the claim of Scripture to contain a knowledge of God which may be expressed as teaching.

  • Jesus was in His own ministry a doctrinal teacher.
  • People were astonished at His teaching (John 7:16)
  • He invited men to discover its divine origin (John 7:17)

Paul speaks

  • of obeying doctrine from the heart (Romans 6:17)
  • warns us of false doctrines (Eph 4:14)
  • warns Timothy to be careful of sound doctrine
  • refers to doctrine at least 12 times in the books of Timothy.
  • the first profit of the Scripture is doctrine. 2 Tim 3:16-17

Doctrine gives the Christian faith its substance and form.
The Blood Of Christ refers to the means by which God can redeem the lost.
