Knowing Men and Knowing God

This quote is from JI Packer in his book The Quest for Godliness.  It is a summary of the Puritan Interpretation of Scripture.

To apply Scripture realistically, one must know what is in men’s heads as well as in their hearts, and the Puritans insisted that the would-be expositor needs to study people as well as the Bible.

Do you agree that those who teach the bible need to know their hearers as well as they know the Bible?
