How can we use hermeneutics to see the Bible through new eyes? Today, we are analyzing GR Hunsberger’s Proposals for a Missional Hermeneutic article in order to fully explore four different approaches to interpreting the Bible missionally. We’ll apply these four aspects to a missional reading of scripture as we weigh their individual advantages and disadvantages. What is the difference between interpreting text with missional direction and missional purpose? How does culture and location affect missional hermeneutics? Why is it important to have conversations like these, and what do they achieve? Our goal this episode is to bring you one step closer to missions & missional theology, to the authority of scripture, and to the word of God! Join us in finding different ways to read and enjoy the Bible!
