Biblical Hermeneutics

This course is an introduction to the principles and practice of biblical interpretation. These lectures were given at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky during the fall of 2002.

Dr. Robert Stein covers the history of the English Bible and then moves into the rules for interpreting the biblical text, including the role of the Holy Spirit in the hermeneutical process. He then spends considerable time moving through the different genres of literature (e.g., proverbs, poetry, parables, narrative).

Thank you to Charles Campbell and Fellowship Bible Church for writing out the lecture notes for the class (to the right). Note that they do not cover every lecture.
