                                    reflections on theology and life


"Exegesis" is the transliteration of a Greek noun that does not appear in the New Testament, but the verb form, exegeomai, appears six times: Jo. 1:18; Lu. 24:35; Acts 10:8; 15:12, 14; 21:19.

Various words and phrases have been used to convey the meaning of the word: "to lead out," "to unfold," "to recount," "to declare," "to make known," "to explain," and "to interpret."

The word has come to be identified with the investigation of Scripture that involves the study of the text, especially in the original languages. Exegesis is the attempt to say what Scripture says; it desires to make known, explain, declare, and unfold the meaning of the text.

Exegesis is the foundational work upon which a theology is erected. If the exegesis is faulty then the theology will be flawed. But if there is an accurate, full, and honest explanation of the text, then the theology will be orthodox.

This section of the website reveals the approach to certain passages that impact and distinguish the theological positions taken by the site. Initial divisions are devoted to Thoughts on Interpretation and Principles of Hermeneutics. Actual passages are dealt with in the Old Testament and New Testament divisions.
