Hermeneutics is the science of interpretation, and Biblical hermeneutics deals with the principles of interpretation that apply to the Bible. Right handling of the text of Scripture requires that any given passage be interpreted within its canonical, theological, historical, cultural, and literary context. The primary objective of correct interpretation is to discover the meaning intended by the original author and derived by the original audience as they processed the text orally. This course will equip the student to rightly handle the text of Scripture, including the derivation of normative principles which are applicable to contemporary life and ministry.

The rules of evidence are applied to the documented eyewitness accounts of Christ’s resurrection to determine the strength of that evidence and thereby reach a verdict concerning the factuality or nonfactuality of the resurrection event.
