Bible's Interpretation Of Israel's History
2,415 wordsThe Bible as History The question of whether the Holy Bible is an actual historical account of what happened since the beginning of humanity, or merely stories that man has come up with over time has long been considered. Many choose to believe the Bible literally and take everything word for word.

Interpretations Of Biblical Information
623 wordsDo you know the moral to the story of the tortoise and the hare? Is it slow and steady wins the race? Or is it that cockiness gets you nowhere?

Whether motivated by politics, social presuppositi...
First Application Of Biblical Exegesis
1,548 wordsFirst I will give you a background of exegesis. Webster's New World Dictionary (1990), defines exegesis as, the interpretation of a word, passage, etc., esp. in the Bible.

According to Lu Ann Bransby in Woman: A Formula for Victorious Living, the Bible di...

The most interesting thing about these three arguments is that they have been used in the past to defend what is now universally regarded as evil. In American history, slavery, segregation, and the denial of the vote to women all ...
