Why Scriptures? And How to Regulate Interpretation Discussion Board – Discussion Board Group 3From 2021FA-RELG-130-783922 unread replies.22 replies.
This week we read a short passage from a textbook on scriptures from around the world and we also discussed the fact that not every religion even has a scripture. There are some religious traditions in the world that do not want to have their sacred words, ideas, stories, etc. written down because that is blasphemous or even dangerous.
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?
Your response must be at least 350 words and include two direct quotations from the reading (along with the page numbers for the quotes). Your initial response is due Thursday, by midnight. You must also respond to at least two classmates by midnight (these responses must each be at least 100 words long).
