TCR Thesis #42 - Comprehension

Comprehending a writing is probabilistic, not a work of full certainty.  When trying to understand a text, attempt to understand what the author was attempting to communicate to their intended audience, including understanding their background, their use of shared definitions and their shared circumstances, such as what it means to be a “follower” and the imminent threat of death to the early followers of Jesus.
