Biblical Interpretation


When reading the Bible, there are 2 types of Interpretation: 1st) Exegesis is proper interpretation, the "leading out" of the text, (pulling out the true meaning) conveying the original author's intent (looking at language, culture and the big story).  Where 2). Eisegesis is "pushing into" the text. It is concerned with interjecting one's ideas to make a point or reading into the text what they hope to find. May we be intentional with our handling and understanding of the Word of God.
