This series is a class study at First Baptist Church Needville on the topic of Biblical Hermeneutics, or the science of interpreting the scriptures. This course will unfold in three general phases:
The Principles: the truths which must be understood and considered when studying and interpreting scripture (such as historical, contextual, linguistic principles and others)
The Process: a deeper foray into the application of these principles, including study of several interpretive laws (the law of recurrence, the law of double reference, the golden rule of interpretation & others)
Practice: a time of extended application in which we will break apart and study the scriptures together, applying what we have learned. (finding the big idea of a paragraph, applying the principles and laws to ensure that the correct meaning, as understood by the original audience, is acquired) You may go to fbcneedville.org/temp/interpretation.pdf and download the class notes for the series.
