Hermeneutics: Syllabus

The Bible is the word of God. It is truth. It is how we know the truth. But do you understand the Bible and how to interpret it? Can you identify when someone interprets the Bible incorrectly, possibly heretically? Can you identify when you misinterpret the Bible?

Hermeneutics is the art and science of interpreting Scripture. In this course we will learn the importance of sound hermeneutics and the basic rules of biblical interpretation.

Read the Bible with understanding. The truths you learn will lead to you to exult in God.
