Who can interpret the Bible ?

Who can interpret the Bible ?

This is personal command exclusively given to disciples and not to the multitude. In other words, Jesus commissioned his disciples into the world to make disciples; to baptize; and to teach all nations with the same authority vested on Him; by means of ‘Laying of hands’ (Luk.24: 50-51) and ‘Breathing’ (John.20: 21-23). 

The disciples administered these 2 acts as signs of receiving and offering the gift of Holy Spirit while ordaining or appointing for the services of the Church, Acts.13: 3; 6:6; 14:23; 2 Tim.1: 6; 1 Tim.5: 22 and Titus 1:5 and the power of Jesus Christ is thus handed down by the bona fide successors to apostles by the act of ordination to generations unto this day. 

Therefore, the genuineness of the interpreter is very conspicuous; that is, he should be duly ordained for that purpose.
