sketchpad SCRIPTURE: FUNCTION OF and RESPONSE TO THE WRITTEN TEXT

I'm working on a word study of te graphe (literally "the Writings;" usually translated "the Scripture") in the gospels and have arrived at the following draft statement:
Scripture provides historical and conceptual context for the relational knowledge of God, community, and self. When a person-to-person encounter with God occurs within this context, the proper result if trust.
How does this play out?

Ecclesial Connections
  • Context: public reading, public proclamation, discussion/dialogue, and encouragement/confrontation.
  • Encounter: worship, service, and testimony
  • Trust: modeling and correction
Functioning Persons
  • Context: chunk reading, portion study, and intentionality
  • Encounter: openness, submission, and readiness
  • Trust: self-evaluation and confession
What else?
