Pentecostals visualize, read, and rehearse Scripture in ways that speak to a gospel of wholeness, inclusion, and uplift. Pentecostals use Scripture to participate via the Spirit in the continuing expression of gospel, with Scripture emerging from gospel. This gospel that gave birth to Scripture emerges anew in the reading, hearing, and rehearsal of Scripture. This article considers three models for the use of Scripture that empower Pentecostals to participate in a continuing expression of gospel. These are 1) gospel as mysterion, 2) gospel as liberation, and 3) gospel as embodied, prophetic voice.
