This essay begins by considering the Pentecostal understanding of, and relationship to, Scripture, arguing that Pentecostals have always adopted an engaged and 'agendad' model of reading the biblical text. It then proceeds to consider how some of the ethical challenges posed by the Old Testament in particular might be addressed by a pneumatic model of reading which seeks to invite the Spirit's guidance throughout the interpretative task, and thereby to dig beyond the surface meaning of the text.
