BIB 5302 - Hermeneutics Foundations

3 credits

As human beings, we automatically interpret many things every moment of every day: gestures, news stories, speeches, actions, novels, music, weather, etc. in order to discover meaning. Hermeneutics is the study of interpretation. BIB 5302 answers the question, “how do we interpret properly?” This course is designed to give students the fundamental principles and processes of interpretation, and how they apply to interpreting the Bible, theology, philosophy, history and contemporary culture. BIB 5301 and 5302 are prerequisites to all 6000 -7000 level Biblical studies courses.
