I like what Maginel said earlier (much earlier):
“I like the phrase “through whose eyes” do you read it because it implies that the reading can only happen within a relationship. Interpretation doesn’t happen in a vacuum ever. In his essay James writes, “We read the Scriptures eucharistically, through the eyes of Jesus our Rabbi”.”
At this point I am not sure what it truly means to read through Jesus’ eyes. Is it to read everything in the light of his forgiveness and love of us? Is it to read looking at others (neighbors) without the rivalry that causes hatred, jealousy and conflict? And will that simplistic interpretive key apply to most of scripture?
