That's what people do today. I am simply asserting that many (most?) infer what they wish it to say. I don't know if it's even possible to figure out consistently what the original author(s) meant because of the huge displacement in time (and civilization/culture). Really, the only "body of work about Christ" is four little books...that's not a lot of source material. And that still omits the other 62 books with various stories and rules of questionable relevance (and/or morality).

Jesus states, His teachings are just what the Father told him to say and how he was told to say it..... the issue of understanding is not cultural, the teachings of Jesus Christ are accepted in all cultures around the world. The problem with understanding is that many people do not want to put His teachings into practice in their own lives. That problem exists here in the US and in the christian community as much as it exists in China, India, the Middle East or Europe.
