Once you have the relevant scripture-block(s), you’re ready to formulate a Bible-based answer to the question.
How does it apply here? The passage was picked for a reason; we “thought” it applied. But based on the context, does it really and how? This can be the most dangerous part of getting to an accurate interpretation. We may come to find this passage actually doesn’t apply to the question.
Further still, there may be times that we can’t be sure of its application with just the passage alone. Therefore, it could be that we must hedge a little with a “Somewhat” or “Not exactly” or “Possibly”. In these cases, we don’t want to jump to a conclusion and apply that passage without first weighing its applicability in light of the other passages. In other words, letting Scripture interpret Scripture! A good example of this is with prophecy, where an inspired writer has not interpreted God’s message for us. This is, yet again, Scripture interpreting Scripture in practice.
