This class is for the Master of Divinity program, but it could be an elective for the Master of Evangelical Theology program.  This course examines the principles of biblical interpretation. Cultural context, historical background, geographical location, linguistic and literary factors are analyzed in order to obtain clarity about the original author’s intended meaning. Thus the various genres of Scripture are examined for their theological content. This will form the basis for constructing sermons that are reliable and relevant.
