Perspective

Caption translation (roughly): We don’t see things as they are, we see matters from our point of view.

Another way to express the same point when it comes to reading God’s word is to read the revealed text in the setting of the Bible as a whole. The Bible was given as a gracious gift to help us (all humanity). To read the revelation anachronistically (wrenched out of its historical context) ignores the part of humanity to whom it was originally intended. It then becomes all about us currently instead of the love towards us from God to recreate us in the image of Jesus the Messiah.
