Different How?

We always ask, or should ask the same four questions when we come to the Word (follow the link for the questions).  So if we asked the questions before – as I asked yesterday – why do we see anew when we come to a familiar passage?
The Bible seems new every time I come to it because I am...
The Scripture has not changed.  God has not changed.  The intent of the Holy Spirit has not changed.  What has changed?  As Chuck stated in his comment yesterday, the only variable in the equation is me.  I have changed.  My life experience is different.  I may have studied other passages that add to my understanding of what I read.  I am different.

You may have heard it said that the Bible can be interpreted in many ways.  Nope.  It means what it means.  We may misunderstand it.  But the Bible is not open to multiple interpretations any more than one of your letters.
