Some of you may know or not that I am going to seminary for my Masters's in Biblical Theology at Calvary University (calvary.edu) with Mary's blessing. I think I am 3/4 of the way through. It is hard work. That is why Bible Study Company posts and podcasts are lower. "Why, Ric, are you going to seminary?". "And shouldn't we just study the Bible any way we want?" Calvary University asked me to do a YouTube interview about why I am going to Calvary. It was an honor, and I hope you enjoyed the video. This video should answer, Who, What, When, How? Let me know your thoughts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_qJpgLQYxA

To have a relationship with God versus religion pray this prayer sincerely, and in your own words. Dear Heavenly Father, (Matt. 6:9) I want a relationship with You...not a religion. I come to You and open my heart. (John 3:16) I will be honest and sincere with You. (John 4) I am running my life and need Your help. (Matt. 6:10) I was made in Your image and I won't be happy until I am in a relationship with you. (Gen. 3) Most of my behavior does not please You. (Romans 3:23) I know I am a sinner, so please forgive my sins because Jesus Christ, Your Son, came to die for me. (John 3:16) I believe Jesus Christ is my savior and salvation is a free gift! It cannot be earned through good works. (Eph. 2:8) You did this so that I can be in a relationship with You on earth and for all eternity. (Romans 10:9-13) And, I will forgive those who have sinned or hurt me too, since you have forgiven me. Take away any bitterness or resentment I carry. (Matt. 6:13-14) Please show me and teach me how to live a praiseworthy life on earth to You. (Matt. 6:33, Acts 9 and 10) I know You love me Father, and I want to love You as well and that you have a purpose and plan for my life. Please teach me to pray. (Matt. 6:9) Thank you, God for saving me to Yourself (Ex. 19:1-8) and making me a new person! (2 Cor. 5:17) In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

There are two important words when the subject of Biblical interpretation is raised. These two words are exegesis and hermeneutics. Exegesis is an analysis of a Biblical passage utilizing defined methods for the purpose of ascertaining the meaning of the Biblical text. One who exegetes a passage of Scripture desires to bring out the nuances contained in the given text in order to learn the intent of the passage. There is a conscious effort not to allow one’s personal beliefs, experiences, or culture to influence one’s interpretation. Hermeneutics can be defined as the science of Biblical interpretation. Hermeneutics focuses on the methodology and principles of Biblical interpretation. Obviously there is a strong connection between exegesis and hermeneutics. The purpose of this article is to succinctly outline the methods and principles for interpreting a Biblical text.
Let’s begin with a common error that many individuals who teach the Bible make. One of the primary responsibilities that pastors have is to bring a weekly sermon. Often times they begin their preparation with a question. “What do I want to teach this week?” Frequently, the basis for this question is what they believe their congregation needs to hear. If the pastor believes, for example, the people need to hear a message on repentance, then he seeks a passage of Scripture that he assumes deals with repentance. What commonly takes place is that the teacher comes up with three points related to his views and understanding of repentance and then seeks three passages that he believes support these points. The error is that he has pre-determined what the passages that he chooses reveal. This is not exegesis (bringing the meaning out of the text), but “eisegesis”, which is placing one’s views, understandings, and personal experiences into the text.
The following is a step-by-step methodology which can be applied to any passage of Scripture which will assist the student of the Bible in arriving at the intrinsic meaning of the text. This methodology offers different approaches to the various steps, based upon one’s theological education.
