In our quest for religious knowledge, we are enmeshed in particular, limiting environments that unavoidably impinge on our perception of what is real and true. Thus language, history, and culture are the filters through which our understanding will be screened; they pro-vide the acquired perceptual frameworks through which we organize our spiritual experience. Much of humankind’s effort to establish religious truth seems not only to ignore but also actually to deny our existential limitations. Therefore, some examination of these matters, including the epistemology of Holy Writ, seems justified.
