ABOUT THE CLASS:

A Practical Guide to Interpreting One Passage of Scripture

It is good to know that one cannot read the Bible without interpreting it, just as one cannot read any book that exists without interpreting it. And no one comes neutrally before the Holy Scriptures. Everyone comes to it with his or her own cultural, religious, philosophical and other backgrounds, hence the importance of a practical guide to biblical interpretation in order to avoid all kinds of bias. This practical guide aims to ensure a correct interpretation of the Scriptures in order to bring out the true message conveyed by the author and to apply it correctly to our context and our own lives.

This work is not intended as a guide to interpretation. We will simply recall some important steps to follow when dealing with a text of Scripture; the important questions to ask at each step. Then I will take a practical case, that is to say; a passage of Scripture as an example and show how to make a good biblical interpretation.
