So the first question I would like you to respond to for this week is:
Why do you think so many religious traditions have a sacred scripture? Why is it that most of the world’s religions have a book or collection of books that contain the important teachings of that religion? What are some of the benefits of scriptures?
Secondly, I would like you to think about the challenge of interpretation that comes along with having a scripture. How do you make sure that a sacred scripture is understood and interpreted correctly? What are some ways you know of that religions regulate the interpretation of their scripture? Or how do you think religions should ensure that no one is going to misinterpret their scriptures?
