1.2.5.1 Interpretation of Holy Scripture through the Holy Spirit

The correct understanding of Holy Scripture, which came into being through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, can only be unlocked by the same Spirit. God's will–and thus also the Holy Scripture given by Him–can only be opened up in all its depth through the activity of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2: 10-12).

As "servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God" (1 Corinthians 4: 1), the Apostles of Jesus are also commissioned to interpret Holy Scripture. They can only do this through the Holy Spirit.
