Biblical Languages 301 Guidelines

This is where we come to delve into the biblical text. Theology is not our foremost thought, but we realize it is something that will be dealt with in nearly every conversation. Feel free to use the original languages to make your point (meaning Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic). This is an exegetical discussion area, so please limit topics to purely biblical ones.

This is not the section for debates between theists and atheists. While a theistic viewpoint is not required for discussion in this area, discussion does presuppose a respect for the integrity of the Biblical text (or the willingness to accept such a presupposition for discussion purposes) and a respect for the integrity of the faith of others and a lack of an agenda to undermine the faith of others.

  • OT Interpretation.

    In my investigation into exegesis, I've read through a good portion of Biblical Interpretation by William W. Klein and Craig L. Blomberg

    I have not quite gotten a handle on the principles behind OT exegesis. I don't understand how the exegetes approach the topics of prophecy and fulfillment.

    So far it seems that the goal of OT exegesis is to find the ideas which the original audience would comprehend. And then the modern day exegetes are supposedly to be focused on the wisdom gleaned for today based on what the original audience would comprehend. However, I think the texts were more focused as a warning to later generations... points given in light of the contemporaneous problems of the Hebrew people.

    The OT interpretation is still something on the back burner. But I am curious what people here have to say about the goals and essence of OT exegesis are.
