HERMENEUTICS

(Reading and Interpreting Scripture)
WITH: Richard M. Davidson, John C. Peckham, Ed Zinke and Jiří Moskala 
INTERVIEWER: Felix H. Cortez

Hermeneutics refers to the theory of interpretation and its methods. It resides at the foundation of Christian faith and life because it determines the bases of our faith and how we approach Scripture. Should we approach the Bible with trust or distrust? What is the role of reason in matters of faith? Questions about whether the Bible is the word of God or if it can be trusted stand at the foundation for every other belief. The videos in this section aid in laying a solid foundation of trust.
