Doing a bit of reading for tomorrow and came across this:
"Though each [Jewish] sect felt that its distinct perspective was determined by the meaning of Scripture, each sect was also heavily affected by sociological forces. The sects at the time of Jesus read the Scriptures in light of their own experience and situation. Since they felt that their own beliefs, in which they had been reared or to which they had been converted, were uniquely confirmed by Scripture, they quite naturally read Torah as if it uniquely prophesied their position."
[Alan F. Segal, Rebecca's Children: Judaism and Christianity in the Roman World, p. 45]
So good to see that things like this do not happen within all the various Christian groups today...
'Er, wait a minute.
