Title: The exegesis flim flam...
Post by: Ted T. on September 13, 2019, 03:22:34 pm
  The flim flam of exegesis is that for anyone to get the meaning of a verse from the verse without any input from their mindset and unfiltered by existing ideas is on the order of Paul's conversion as a bright light and hearing GOD's voice.


Every interpretation of a verse is eisegesis, the fitting of the verse into previously accepted definitions.
No one is without a personal pov, a bias toward one truth or another... To claim to be above and beyond eisegesis is to claim to be 100% speaking the word of GOD, truly beyond a personal mindset and all personal ideological filters.

Which is why one needs to interpret by following rules of the road.

I read the Bible Literally, Historically, gramatically, etc.

Lets take your favorite...Romans 8:29..(KJV).."For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."

 "For whom" is talking about Mankind/
"He"  is speaking of GOD/
"He also did predestinate": Jesus did something extra here other than just telling us he knew us in the past.   He predestinated those of us who HE chose with no reason given and no number of people given.

I'll stop there. God's Word is written for a small child's mind to wrap around  but deep enough for the best scholars to study for years.

How great is He that He can take a subject, let us say Paul. Here GOd takes a Saul, a hater of Jewish people, had commissioned a job where He would kille many of them... On the road, a white light appeared and blinded Saul...Through subsequent scenes, Saul became Paul, the greatest of all apologist and the Apostle to both Jew and gentile.

When Paul spoke, he spoke the words GOD inspired him to write. Through Paul, GOD's words tells us about Paul himself wile at the same time tells us the story of the Bible. The story of two marriages ending in everlasting life.
