True Giving: A Brief Exposition of Philippians
“The Levites…instructed the people in the Law while the people were standing there. They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was being read.” (Neh. 8:7-8)
The Levites, under Ezra’s oversight, did not take it upon themselves to make exhaustive interpretation and application of every word in the text, but, instead, simply read the Word of God, “making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was being read.” This is the simple purpose of this exposition: to make the Scriptures clear and to give their sense. It is not our purpose to exhaust every possible interpretation or to make lengthy application of the text. We will leave that up to the local leaders into whose care the Holy Spirit has entrusted His flock.
