How do we apply the Bible today? What does this passage really mean? How should I approach the Bible? These are common questions for anyone who reads God’s Word. This unit not only helps to answer these questions but also a foundation for all biblical study. It equips students to analyse and interpret the Bible responsibly and creatively by bridging the gap between the world of the Bible and our modern world. In this unit we look at different approaches to Scripture, the background of scripture, how we as interpreters are involved in the process of constructing meaning, and how we can effectively apply the message of an ancient book to our world and lives today. This unit lies at the heart of all Biblical and systematic theological studies. As such it thus integrates with all New Testament, Old Testament and systematic theological subjects.
