The Pearl of Great Price

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

-Matthew 13:44-46 (KJV)

“Meaning” resides in the person of whom the text speaks, and our task is to come to know this person by understanding how the text speaks of him. This fundamental point is made by Christ himself, when he says, “You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life, yet it is they that witness to me” (John 5:39).
