Pope Benedict: Bible Cannot Be Taken Literally
#6
It is impossible to interpret the bible literally.  You need to understand and have studied ancient history and know the traditions and customs of the people of that era.  You need to know their beliefs and writings of that time.  There is nothing new about the Catholic church saying that we can't interpret the bible as individuals.  You need to be a biblical scholar.
