John Behr - Reading Scripture Allegorically

In part two of our podcast, Dr. John Behr (patristics professor, formerly of St. Vladimir’s Seminary, now at the University of Aberdeen) makes another provocative statement: “Unless we read the Bible allegorically, we are not reading it as Scripture.”  In the early church, what they remembered about Jesus was reflected through the passion in light of Scripture, that is, the Old Testament.  He ends the podcast making some recommendations about how a person might go about reading the Church Fathers.
