This course is a study of the pivotal principles of biblical interpretation. The aim of the course is to equip the student with sound theory and skills to interpret the biblical text. The focus of this course will be upon an understanding of historical precedents and the application of established hermeneutical principles in Pentecostal-evangelical traditions. The course concentrates on three areas. First, the disciplines (exegesis and hermeneutics) are defined and hermeneutical principles are discussed. Secondly, the steps of the interpretative process are studied in detail and applied to selected texts. Finally, the history of interpretation is outlined, including current trends in hermeneutics. This course is a part of Graduate Certificate in Studies in Pentecostal Theology program. Students can attend classes online.
