Hermeneutics (Interpreting the Bible)

Here are details of another of our new virtual classrooms which are running this autumn and which are open to anyone.  (You can find more information about our virtual classrooms here.)

Hermeneutics is the technical term for the theory and methodology of correctly studying the text of Scripture. This course is designed to give you the tools to study any passage of Scripture and come to a correct understanding and application of the text.

Hermeneutics is both a science and an art.   It is a science because there are rules that must be applied, and it is an art in that the skill and gifting of the interpreter is necessary for the correct application of the rules.

This will be a very practical and interactive course with lots of exercises and opportunities to apply what you have learned.

This course runs over 18 weeks – 9 in the autumn of 2020 and 9 in the Spring of 2021. There is an optional, additional 9 week component in the summer of 20201.
