Hermeneutics: Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

Hermeneutics: Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
By James Scott Trimm

Judaism has very systematic refined rules for understanding the Scriptures. Christianity differs not in having an alternate set of agreed upon rules, but in having no agreed upon rules whatsoever! As the Christian "Church Father" Jerome wrote: 'The Jews insist upon a literal interpretation of the Scripture based on thirteen rules, but we know that the spiritual interpretation is far superior.' 2Tim. 2:15 Justifies use of hermeneutics by indicating that there is a right way to understand the scriptures. This book will teach you: ~The need for hermeneutics. ~The Basic Principles of Hermeneutics ~Primary Logic Errors and how to avoid them ~The Four levels of understanding of a passage. ~The Peshar Method used at Qumran ~The Seven Rules of Hillel (and how they are used by NT writers) ~The Thirteen Rules of Ishmael ~The 32 Rules of Eliezer ~The Forms of Midrashic Exegesis (and examples of them in the NT) ~How the Hebrew Poetic forms can be an important key to understanding a passage.

I actually bought the e-book version of this. I haven't finished reading it. It sounds like more than 13 rules of scripture interpretation to me. However, the apostles got thier consistent interpretation of the scriptures from Yahshua. SO, I will be comparing what and how He taught with the teachings in this book. That seems the most logical way to see if it explains His teachings. YHVH bless you. June
