Inspired interpretation

Bro. Cosmo made an interesting comment, "Scripture does not 'speak for itself,' but must be 'lit up' from the inside out by inspired interpretation." Then continued with an interesting analogy, if I recall correctly, he said think of scripture as Beethoven's Ninth and it being played with a Jew's Harp. Often that is exactly how scripture is presented, without depth, without 'inspired interpretation.' Now think of that same scripture with the inspired interpretion of Arturo Toscanini. Ahhhh, ode to joy!
