The next step in a good Bible study method is interpretation. This asks the question,
"what does it mean?"
This is where you draw inferences. Here you combine your background knowledge and information
from the Bible to interpret and draw conclusions.
It requires you to use some prior knowledge and is the process of building new knowledge.
Gaining new comprehension of the biblical text builds upon your prior knowledge of the Bible and enables you
to better comprehend the Text.
You will see this when you read a familiar biblical passage and discover a new insight or
meaning that you didn't discover earlier.
