Is context necessary when reading the Bible?


When you read scripture, or any text for that matter should you make sure you understand the context?

    Awesome! You are so right about that. Scripture gets taken out of context all the time, hence masses of mislead hearts. God bless!

    My response is this.

    "O, that this too too sullied flesh would melt...But break, my heart, for I must hold my tongue."

    Can you understand this analogy in full without context?
