Bad Biblical Interpretation

Posted: June 22, 2011 by Alan Shlemon in God Has Spoken

Last week, I posted a blog of my professor, Walt Russell, talking about the importance of reading the Bible as well as you can read a blog (hermeneutics or biblical interpretation). This week, I’m posting the second half of that interview where Dr. Russell gives two examples of common interpretive mistakes from the Bible.

I (Alan) caught up with one of my professors at Biola University and asked him why it’s important to study the proper method of interpreting the Bible.

Walt Russell is an expert in hermeneutics and has written a book on the subject called, Playing with Fire: How the Bible Ignites Change in Your Soul.

I’ve written two articles on this issue. One is called, “My Most Controversial Teaching” and the other is called, “Learn a Secret Skill of Pastors to Help Understand the Bible.”

Part 2 of this interview can be found here.
