Truth Today

WHAT IS TRUTH TODAY?


Truth Today is a manageable training curriculum designed to strengthen and encourage our membership. The first phase will consist of three 12-week classes: Hermeneutics, Old Testament Exposition, and New Testament Exposition. Phase two will focus on Ecclesiology, Church Leadership, Shepherding Essentials, and Elder Ordination Preparation. The first three classes have been created and tested with a small group of men. Each year, a new class will be introduced which builds off of the previous classes.


Registration is Closed
for our first class: Hermeneutics


Class 1: Hermeneutics


Saturdays • 9am • Upper Room
May - August • Cost: $5

This class provides a foundation for a lifetime of studying, applying, and teaching the Bible. We will examine the science and art of Bible interpretation with a focus on the grammatical-historical method as the proper approach to interpreting Scripture. This will include a survey of major interpretive approaches to the Bible; a biblical rationale for the grammatical-historical method; and a thorough examination of both (a) the comprehensive set of general interpretive principles which apply to all of Scripture (General Hermeneutics) and (b) the narrower set of specialized principles for interpreting the various literary genres of Scripture (Special Hermeneutics). An additional focus will be given to key issues that are controversial within the field of contemporary hermeneutics.
