Hermeneutics is a process that is always taking place. Every time we read or hear the Bible interpretation and application are taking place. The goal of this course is to provide tools and understanding so that this process is conducted in a manner that is healthy. The Bible contains texts that come from a time and place far removed from where we live today. Yet the Christian believes that these texts have application for modern life. The working assumption of this course is that Christians want to be people shaped by the Bible.
This course provides an introduction to some of the key ideas that need to be understood. Students then take these concepts and turn them into a practical exegesis of the text, and apply that exegesis to a context. While some of the terms that have just been used might be strange, the sentiment behind them is one that might sound familiar. The point behind healthy hermeneutics is not knowledge for the sake of knowledge; rather there must be application.
