Excerpt: Those who accept the Bible as the Word of God believe that God has spoken to us unambiguously. We believe that there is only one right interpretation of any given Biblical passage - the meaning God intended when He breathed His word into the human author. If this view is correct, it follows that of the many different interpretations skeptics. to, there must be only one that is valid. That is, while a particular passage may have many applications, it must have only one meaning - the one the author (through inspiration of the Holy Spirit) intended. How, then may we determine the proper interpretation of Scripture? The science of Biblical Hermeneutics - in all it's varied schools - seeks to provide a methodology to answer that question. Biblical hermeneutics is the science that teaches the principles and methods of interpreting the Word of God. Proper hermeneutics provide us tools to help ensure that we are basing our interpretations on the truth as God has revealed it, while avoiding error to the greatest degree possible. Using sound hermeneutic principles is not optional for the true disciple of Christ. The Apostle Paul enjoins us to be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief introduction to some basic hermeneutical principles - principles that we strive to adhere to in the commentaries on this website. A short bibliography and links to resources for additional research are provided at the end of this paper.
