The purpose of this page is to present a comprehensive and coherent methodology for Biblical interpretation. Many skeptics have complained that the Bible can’t tell us anything of any real value because every person interprets it differently. While this is surely an overstatement – there is a great deal contained in the Bible that many Bible-believing Christians do in fact agree on – the reason why there are so many different interpretations is because interpreters don’t follow any sensible or consistent method. This naturally leads to inaccurate, inconsistent, illogical and naive interpretations.  We imploy the Grammatical-Historical Method.  

Dr. Phil Fernandes – Hermeneutics – Session 08

Biblical hermeneutics is the study of the principles of interpretation concerning the books of the Bible.

With so many different interpretations available, how is anyone supposed to know which is the correct one? By examining the nature of the Bible, the events it records and how it was written, it is possible to come up with a method of interpretation that is sensible and understandable.

The Bible is an historical book – it records people and events in history. Therefore, if we want to correctly interpret it we must understand its historical background and context. The Bible is also written in human language (Koine or Hellenistic Greek, Ancient Hebrew and Aramaic). Culture and customs of the day it was written gives great understanding of to the text. The idioms found in that culture and background.  Therefore, if we want to correctly interpret it we must understand the language (ie. word meanings and grammar) in which it is written.

The Grammatico-Historical Method

The exegetical commentaries on this website generally follow the “Grammatico-Historical” method of interpretation.  As its name implies, this method of interpretation focuses attention not only on literary forms but upon grammatical constructions and historical contexts out of which the Scriptures were written.  It is solidly in the “literal schools” of interpretation, and is the hermeneutical methodology embraced by virtually all evangelical Protestant exegetes and scholars.  It embraces each of the ten principles enumerated here.
