It takes a while to figure out how to read scripture. The same passage can mean something in the historical literal context, but also be an allegory to other things. The more you learn about salvation history and the more Bible knowledge you attain, you will start to see these patterns manifest. A simple story that seems straightforward to you at first may, at a second glance, bring to mind other aspects of Christian belief.

My recommendation to you is to do a few things:

  1. Get yourself a Catholic Study Bible. A study Bible will try to provide some context into what the authors are trying to convey. Specifically, the Didache Study Bible is a great resource.
  2. Get your self a copy of The Bible Compass by Edward Sri. It is a quick read and will give you insight into how to read the Bible.
  3. Read A Father Who Keeps His Promises by Scott Hahn. It is a good overview of how we should view scripture from a Christian perspective.

I think all this will help you appreciate scripture more.
