  • Hermeneutics Of The Biblical Writers

    $19.99

    Learn to interpret the Bible from the biblical writers themselves

    A method of interpretation–a hermeneutic–is indispensable for understanding Scripture, constructing theology, and living the Christian life, but most contemporary hermeneutical systems fail to acknowledge the principles and practices of the biblical writers themselves.

    Christians today cannot employ a truly biblical view of the Bible unless they understand why the prophets and apostles interpreted Scripture the way they did. To this end, Abner Chou proposes a hermeneutic of obedience, in which believers learn to interpret Scripture the way the biblical authors did?including understanding the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament. Chou first unfolds the prophetic hermeneutic of the Old Testament authors, and demonstrates the continuity of this approach with the apostolic hermeneutic of the New Testament authors.
