22. Interpreting Scripture: Medieval Interpretations
Introduction to New Testament (RLST 152) The principles of interpreting the New Testament in this course assume a historical critical perspective. The historical critical method of interpreting a text privileges the intended meaning of the ancient author, the interpretation of a text's original audience, the original language the text was written in, and the avoidance of anachronism. However, for most of the last two thousand years, this has not been the method of interpretation of the Bible. Pre-modern interpreters, such as Origen and Augustine, felt free to allegorize and use the text as they saw fit. It was only through the Reformation and other events in modern history that the historical critical method became the predominant method of interpretation. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

21. Interpreting Scripture: Hebrews
Introduction to New Testament (RLST 152) There are many ways of interpreting the text, and ancient methods of interpretation may seem bizarre to our modern sensibilities. The New Testament offers us many examples of how an early Christian might interpret the text of the Hebrew Bible, which was their scripture. The Letter to the Hebrews, which is not really a letter but a speech of encouragement, structures its argument around the thesis that Jesus' liturgy and priesthood is superior to that in the Hebrew Bible. The author of Hebrews proves this through several interesting interpretations of passages from the Hebrew Bible. 00:00 - Chapter 1. What Does A Text Mean? Methods of Interpretation 14:23 - Chapter 2.

Why so Many Interpretations of the Bible..Which One is Right?? - Ravi Zacharias Answers
"Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails." - Proverbs 19:21 The Bible is an open book for everybody, and everybody has a fair shot of coming up with whatever they want to find in it. We've got to see the credentials of the teachers. Not only that, but we don’t want to rely on just one person’s opinion. That’s why when it comes to a biblical interpretation, I often counsel people to check as many sound sources as they can and then not just contemporary sources, but the great minds, the recognized minds of Christian history. It’s amazing to me the tremendous amount of agreement there is among Augustine, Aquinas, Anselm, Luther, Calvin, and Edwards—the recognized titans of church history. I always consult those because they’re the best. If you want to know something, go to the pros. RECEIVE JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR! Choosing to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is the most important decision you'll ever make FRIEND! God's Word promises, "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation..... For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" -ROMANS.10:9--10,13. By His grace, God has already done everything to provide salvation. Your part is simply to believe and receive. Pray out loud,. Jesus, I confess that You are my Lord and Savior, I believe in my heart that God raised You from the dead. By faith in Your Word, I receive salvation now. Thank You for saving me! The very moment you commit your life to Jesus Christ, the truth of His Word instantly comes to pass in your spirit. Now that you're born again, there's a brand-new you! "Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things are passed away, behold all things have become new." - II CORINTHIANS 5:17 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:" -EPHESIANS 2:8

From Text to Interpretation: How the Bible Came to Mean Some of the Strange Things It Means
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) James Kugel, director of the Institute for the History of the Jewish Bible at Bar Ilan University, argues that the Hebrew Bible was, from the beginning, the Interpreted Bible. In the third and second centuries B.C.E. -- well before the last books of the Bible were written -- groups of interpreters were puzzling over the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and Esau, and other ancient figures. Their interpretations were often fanciful, and sometimes wildly inventive, but their grasp of the very idea of the Bible is still with us and continues to influence today's readers.

The Four Senses of Scripture
http://www.thereligionteacher.com/videos/ The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC,115-119) defines four senses of Scripture that we should use to read and interpret the Bible: the literal sense, the allegorical sense, the moral sense, and the anagogical sense. With these 4 senses of Scripture in mind, we should read and understand each story of the Bible.

Scripture and the Early Church - Fr. Mitch Pacwa
As a scholar of ancient and Middle Eastern history, culture, and religion, Fr. Mitch Pacwa examines the ramifications of the translation and interpretation of Sacred Scripture out of their proper context. (This talk was originally given in 2004 at the CHNetwork's "Deep in History" conference) About the Deep in History Talks from the CHNetwork: The early period of the growth of Christianity (ca. A.D. 50-700) is a rich source for learning how the earliest disciples and apostles of Jesus Christ passed on the “faith delivered once and for all to God’s holy ones” (Jud 3). From Ignatius of Antioch in the early second century to Gregory the Great in the early seventh, the story of the Church’s proclamation in winning over pagan culture to Christ is widely diverse in practice and wonderfully unified in doctrine. The faith of these early Saints inspires and challenges us to live more deeply in love with Christ and in continuity with our forbearers in Christ. We hope these resources take you deep into the history of Christ's Church and thereby deeper into Christ. Please visit: http://DeepinHistory.com http://CHNetwork.org

Theological Interpretation: Scripture as Formation
“The foundational commitment that drives theological interpretation of scripture has to be this sense that reading scripture isn’t an end in it of itself. It’s one of God’s gifts to the church, to bring Christians to their proper end in God. It’s a vehicle for bringing us to God. Ultimately all that scriptural interpretation has to be directed toward serving that larger end of bringing us to God.” – Dr. Fowl

The Book of Job Explained
To help support this ministry click here: http://www.patreon.com/inspiringphilosophy The Book of Job is one of the most misunderstood books in the Bible. I attempt to clear that up by offering a different perspective than most people know today. The traditional surface understanding doesn't make sense with scripture or the actual text. This new approach will clear up several misconceptions. In regards to Job 2:3. It is interesting you brought this up, because this was something I had planned to talk about but left it because I thought I was getting to technical. Commentators like John MacArthur note the Hebrew is the same expression for what Satan uses in Job 1:9, "for nothing." Basically God has turned Satan's own words against him. God is pointing out Satan was wrong that Job only worshipped his stuff. Which is something I pointed out at the end that Satan, Job, and Job's friends were all wrong in this. God is pointing out here Job is not suffering because Satan was right about him in this, but there is deeper thing taking place. Job didn't have his stuff taken away for the cause Satan had thought. *If you are caught excessively commenting, insulting, or derailing then your comments will be removed.

On the Interpretation of Scripture: The Mystic Way
Question: Where did you discover these interpretations. The metaphors within the parables for instance or miracles. Mainline Catholicism does.not mention any of these. It simply stops at ' it's a miracle'. So two questions really: did the miracles happen and if so did they happen in order to to teach. Or are they part of a story for teaching? Second question is really repeat of earlier. Is this info known and taught to seminarians within mainstream but they chose not to divulge them to the congregation. Or is this your own interpretation. You see people say scripture can be interpreted in many ways so what makes one way more valid than another?

On Christian Doctrine, A Treatise On Scripture Interpretation Rules, Saint Augustine, Audiobook
On Christian Doctrine (A Treatise on Scripture Interpretation Rules) by St. Augustine Publication date 2009-01-13 Usage Public Domain Topics Audiobook - nonfiction, Religion, Bible St. Augustine of Hippo, the famous Christian convert and bishop, teaches basic rules of scripture interpretation, teaching, and preaching. He also advocates free sharing and distribution of information as a multiplier of wealth and stimulus to learning; discusses semantics and linguistics; and does a whole bunch of theologizing. Fun stuff! Notes Complete. Augustine of Hippo (/ɔːˈɡʌstɪn/ or /ˈɔːɡəstiːn/; 13 November 354 – 28 August 430)[4] was an early Christian theologian and philosopher[5] whose writings influenced the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was the bishop of Hippo Regius in north Africa and is viewed as one of the most important Church Fathers in Western Christianity for his writings in the Patristic Era. Among his most important works are The City of God and Confessions. According to his contemporary, Jerome, Augustine "established anew the ancient Faith."[note 1] In his early years, he was influenced by Manichaeism and afterward by the neo-Platonism of Plotinus. After his baptism and conversion to Christianity in 386, Augustine developed his own approach to philosophy and theology, accommodating a variety of methods and perspectives.[6] Believing that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom, he helped formulate the doctrine of original sin and made seminal contributions to the development of just war theory. When the Western Roman Empire began to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Church as a spiritual City of God, distinct from the material Earthly City.[7] His thoughts profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. The segment of the Church that adhered to the concept of the Trinity as defined by the Council of Nicaea and the Council of Constantinople [8] closely identified with Augustine's On the Trinity. Augustine is recognized as a saint in the Catholic Church, the Eastern Christian Church, and the Anglican Communion and as a preeminent Doctor of the Church. He is also the patron of the Augustinians. His memorial is celebrated on 28 August, the day of his death. Augustine is the patron saint of brewers, printers, theologians, the alleviation of sore eyes, and a number of cities and dioceses.[9] Many Protestants, especially Calvinists and Lutherans, consider him to be one of the theological fathers of the Protestant Reformation due to his teachings on salvation and divine grace.[10][11][12] Lutherans, and Martin Luther in particular, have held Augustine in preeminence (after the Bible and St. Paul). Luther himself was a member of the Order of the Augustinian Eremites (1505–1521). In the East, some of his teachings are disputed and have in the 20th century in particular come under attack by such theologians as John Romanides.[13] But other theologians and figures of the Eastern Orthodox Church have shown significant appropriation of his writings, chiefly Georges Florovsky.[14] The most controversial doctrine surrounding his name is the filioque,[15] which has been rejected by the Orthodox Church.[16] Other disputed teachings include his views on original sin, the doctrine of grace, and predestination.[15] Nevertheless, though considered to be mistaken on some points, he is still considered a saint, and has even had influence on some Eastern Church Fathers, most notably Saint Gregory Palamas.[17] In the Orthodox Church his feast day is celebrated on 15 June.[15][18] Church scholar and historian Diarmaid MacCulloch writes "his impact on Western Christian thought can hardly be overstated; only his beloved example Paul of Tarsus, has been more influential, and Westerners have generally seen Paul through Augustine's eyes."

Principles of Biblical Interpretation~ The Doctrine of Scripture 5   ~by David Chanski
Check our Free Christian Android Apps: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Porepedia 1. God's Purpose...Peace and Life God loves you and wants you to know Him so He can fill you with peace and give you real life -- forever. The Bible says:: Because of our Lord Jesus Christ, we live at peace with God (Romans 5:1) God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only son, so that everyone who has faith in Him will have eternal life and never die (John 3:16). Jesus said: "I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest" (John 10:10). Since God planned for us to have peace and real life right now, why are so many people hurting or angry inside? 2. Our Problem...Separation From God- God created us in His own image so we can know Him personally and have a joy-filled life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him, but gave us a will and a freedom of choice. Since the beginning of time, we have chosen to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God and ends in misery. The Bible says: All of us have sinned and fallen short of God's holiness (Romans 3:23). The result of unforgiven sin is death. But God's gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). The Bible says that disobeying God results in being separated from Him. Our attempts can never unite us with God. Through the ages, people have tried many ways to bridge this gap and reach God -- without success. The Bible says: Adam sinned, and that sin brought death into the world. Now everyone has sinned, and so everyone must die (Romans 5:12). You may think you are on the right road and still end up dead (Proverbs 14:12). There is only one way to reach God. 3. God's Remedy...The Cross God's Purpose... Peace and Life Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem. He is the only One who can bring us back to God. He died on the Cross and rose from the grave, paying the penalty for our sin and bridging the gap between God and people. The Bible says: There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only one who can bring us to God (1 Timothy 2:5). Christ died once for our sins. An innocent person died for those who are guilty. Christ did this to bring you to God (1 Peter 3:18). But God showed how much He loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful (Romans 5:8). God has provided the only way -- we must make the choice. 4. Our Response...Give Ourselves to Christ . Our Response... Give Ourselves to Christ We must trust Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and determine to obey Him for the rest of our lives. That way we can know God and find peace again. The Bible says: So you will be saved, if you honestly say, Jesus is Lord, and if you believe with all your heart that God raised Him from death. God will accept you and save you, if you truly believe this (Romans 10:9-10). Is there any good reason why you cannot turn your life over to Jesus Christ right now? How to give your life to Christ: 1. Admit you are a sinner and need forgiveness. 2. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave. 3. Through prayer, confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and commit to live for Him for the rest of your life God Bless You Resource.. cbn.com
