Wesley was widely read. He particularly liked Clement of Alexandria and the gnostics. However, how he read Scripture he explained in his book A Plain Account of Christian Perfection. He is often misquoted. He said to read Scripture literally IF YOU CAN. Many don’t quote”if you can.”

Point taken

I should clarify that Wesley used the "literal and spiritual" interpretation method, which was first introduced by the School of Alexandria.

The 7 ecumenical councils were nothing like modern-day General Conferences - not even remotely.
