Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not; nor do they understand.
And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah which said, ‘By hearing you shall hear and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see and shall not perceive; for this people’s heart has become gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and they have closed their eyes, lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.’
But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear.
For truly I say to you that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear what you hear, and have not heard them.” (Mat 13:10-17)
The science of the study of the meaning of text, whether law, scripture, or poetry, is called hermeneutics, which is to be paired with proper exegesis.
However, even when sound hermeneutics and exegesis are used, extracting meaning that most would agree with is difficult.
This is true of law (e.G. Constitutional interpretation), of scripture (e.G. Talmud, Koran, New Testament), and of scientific facts.
Many variations of legal interpretation, scriptural interpretation, and scientific theory abound in our world.

I would strongly disagree with one of those. The Koran, New Testament, Torah Bible and so on all awcknowledge God and do not deliberately denounce Christ or reject his teaching.
The Talmud absolutely does and there are constant references written in it that are easily demonizing of Christ, praising of Satan etc. Those are occult books.
