In this Council of Adventist Pastors interview, Pr Jim Brackett and Pr Larry Kirkpatrick discuss the new NAD proposed approach to biblical interpretation which opens the way for women's ordination. The NAD's new "Principle-based, Historical-cultural" method is contrasted with the longstanding Seventh-day Adventist use of the Historical-grammatical method.
This video immediately continues the comparison between the North American Division's proposed "Principle-based, Historical-cultural" method of biblical interpretation, with the longstanding Seventh-day Adventist principles of the "Historical-grammatical" method, undertaken in part 1 of the interview. Pr. Jim Brackett interviews Pr. Larry Kirkpatrick for the Council of Adventist Pastors (CAP). Back-and-forth comparisons are made between the SDA method ("Rio" document"), and the NAD's new method.
This short program examines the North American Division's (NAD) proposed "Principle-based, Historical-cultural" (PBHC) method of biblical interpretation. The method has been proposed as a means of dealing with certain "difficult texts" proponents of women's ordination (WO) have struggled with. With the use of the PBHC method, the difficult texts disappear, and "no conclusive evidence prohibiting the ordination of women can be found in the Bible." This video examines proposed guidelines for when to use PBHC, notes its close relation to the Historical-critical method, and discusses its embrace of reader-response criticism. Finally, the question is answered, can this method be considered to be compatible with longstanding Seventh-day Adventist use of the Historical-grammatical method. On behalf of the Council of Adventist Pastors (CAP) host Jim Brackett interviews pastor Larry Kirkpatrick.
