The Nature of Hermeneutics:
Engage in dialogue regarding the nature of hermeneutics and the relationship of this discipline to the Divine inspiration of the Bible as described in the Osborne text. Define, critique and expand on the ideas and proposals found in this text. Strengthen your observations with good and appropriate sources from the wealth of research and thinking on this topic (utilize the ATLAreligion database to locate these sources).
Mental Models and the Ideas Behind Texts: Engage in dialogue regarding the “mental models” that writers hold when constructing a text. Using the Sire text (Chapters 2 and 5), discuss the types of presuppositions that writers hold, together with their diverse possible contexts. Consider how Biblical passages could also reveal worldview and ideological contexts. Strengthen your observations with specific Biblical references and appropriate sources from the wealth of research and thinking on worldviews and on political ideologies (Utilize the ATLA Religion and ABI/Inform databases to locate these sources).
STUDY: Chapters 1 to 3 of the Osborne text (about 100 pages) Reference Osborne, G. R. (2006). The Hermeneutical Spiral: A Comprehensive Introduction to Biblical Interpretation. (Downloads)
