What’s a hermeneutic?

September 12, 2007 at 7:11 am

A hermeneutic is a method of interpreting a text.  For theologians, hermeneutics mostly has to do with the way one interprets the Bible.

 Roy Harrisville has provided “A Primer on Lutheran Hermeneutics,” which, in his words:

“is intended for the general reader and is to be understood as a brief description of how Lutherans have and should approach the Bible. A Lutheran approach to Scripture has certain necessary components. They are: the priority of Scripture, Christ as the center of Scripture, law and gospel, the plain sense of Scripture, the power of Scripture, and the inspiration of Scripture.”
