Wisdom Has Mingled Her Wine!
 Proverbs 9:1-2 & 5 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewnout her seven pillars:2 She hath killed her beasts;
 she hath mingled her wine
she hathalso furnished her table.5
Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I havemingled.
This is a symbolically laced setting of scripture. ‘Wisdom’ hathmingled her ‘wine’. Wine and bread in this setting is symbolic for doctrine. Doctrine is defined as
‘something taught, especially the principles of religion.’ 
 Listening to the opinions of other teachers within theJudaic/Christian tradition is
to partake of this
mingled wine
. Biblical study mixed within multitude of counselors or teachers is the perfect recipe.Proverbs 11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but
in themultitude of counsellors there is safety.
I as a Christian study Rabbinic literature, there are many good books for the general reader. Jewish biblical scholarship is of course superb. This being ‘in the multitude of ‘counselors’, is asafety net from falling into the ‘make no sense rules’ that is typicalof fundamentalism. One of fundamentalism’s traits is they makethings that are trivial to the average person, such as dressstandards, observance of certain days or rituals to be a matter of morals or ethics. Thus these things become their own privateinterpretation. It tends to isolate them from normal society. They become overtly judgmental of others, this can breed intoleranceand lack of compassion. Private interpretation is undesirable, wemust listen to the opinions and interpretations of others then formour own opinions according to knowledge.
2 Timothy 2:15
 Study to shew thyself approved unto God 
, aworkman that needeth not to be ashamed,
dividing the word of truth.
Judaism considers studying the scriptures as one of the highestforms of worship. To
rightly dividing 
the word of truth, is to searchthe bible by subject, word comparison, passages that are similar,interpretation of parables, proverbs and similitudes.To compare strands of scripture that are similar to one another.This type of bible study is puzzle like; this style of study takes a lotof seeking, comparing and contemplating. Good bible softwaremakes this easy and most enjoyable.2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture
given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine
, for reproof, for correction,
 for instructionin righteousness
:All scripture
given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine & for instruction in righteousness
:2 Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that
no prophecy of the scripture isof any private interpretation.
 No prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.Private interpretation limits our understanding, it is important tolisten and consider other peoples ideas of what scripture means. Itis also important to know the scriptures well. If we adhere to onlyone person’s interpretation we will have a narrow vision and could be wrong about what we believe. No one man will have it all.Amazing how much that can be learned from considering theopinions of others. The synagogue at Berea is a good example of  people
‘mingling their wine’.
