Biblical Hermeneutics is the study of the principles of interpretation applied to Scripture passages in light of their special nature. The field of hermeneutics is concerned with how we derive and assign meaning to communication. Biblical Hermeneutics investigates not only general principles and models of interpreting meaning, but also the special nature of the written Word as God-inspired communication, the history of how God’s people have interpreted Scripture, the impact of biblical literary genre on interpreting meaning, and the present significance of its meaning to Christian individual, corporate, and societal life, and to the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom to the nations.
This course provides a basic overview of the history of Christianity and historical theology from the post-apostolic period into the twentieth century. Attention will be given to the origins and developments of various expressions of the doctrines and practices of the historical church. Focus will be limited to the development of “Western” Christianity.
Sharpen your biblical interpretation and study skills and become more confident in your ability to rightly divide the Word of Truth through this course. Exegetical Methods provides a basic overview of the principles and practices of biblical exegesis with special attention to the use of exegetical aids, such as dictionaries, lexicons, concordances, and critical commentaries. Assignments will focus on how exegetical decisions are made, and how we move from the exegesis of the text to our appropriation of it in life and ministry.
