The Bible has also never been a history book or a scientific textbook, explains Choon-Leong Seow, professor of Old Testament language and literature at Princeton Theological Seminary.
Interpreting the Bible is a little like studying Leonardo da Vinci's painting The Last Supper, he says. Modern viewers do not consider the Christ figure in da Vinci's painting an accurate portrait because we know it was painted centuries after the supper happened, but that does not take away from the artist's spiritual message about Jesus' last night with his disciples. "For us who believe that this is Scripture, Scripture is important as it has formative power, it forms the people, and it transforms," Seow says.
