Many people think it has to be history or nothing. If all you have now is a Reference Bible, you have a great resource available to you. Based upon various forms of the philosophy of hermeneutics, the task of interpretation involves, accordingly, three steps: 1. to hear the word from within one's own concrete situation; 2. to identify the aspects of the present situation highlighted or put in question by the biblical text; 3. to draw from the fullness of meaning contained in the biblical text those elements capable of advancing the present situation in a way that is productive and consonant with the saving will of God in Christ.

In other words, we should not make it say just what we want it to or what someone else has told us it says.

Cain was then building a city, and he named it after his son Enoch. 18 To Enoch was born Irad, and Irad was the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael was the father of Methushael, and Methushael was the father of Lamech. 19 Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah. 20 Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock. 21 His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play stringed instruments and pipes. 22 Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of[ g ] bronze and iron.

It’s just the lie of Satan in the Garden over and over and over and over again. “You can get there through your reason…don’t worry about the Bible…don’t worry about the gospel…you don’t need that…you can get there by your own reason.” But look, how could fallen man in a cursed world find God’s truth by his perverted reason and perfect man in perfect world couldn’t find God with perfect reason. Contemporary feminist biblical study for the most part, but not entirely, has tended to remove negative theological overlay, to recapture positive aspects of Eve’s role, and generally to understand how this famous beginnings account might have functioned in Israelite culture.

I bought this Study Bible because I had never heard of anything like it and it seemed it would be a great resource for helping me understand the many different places mentioned in the Bible. Tractate Soferim expands this with the statement, "the Bible is compared to water, the Mishnah to pepper, the Gemara to spices."
