About this course

Series: Stand-alone courses

How can we bring God’s Word from the ancient Biblical world to our modern world as God intended? Contemporary application must be anchored to the text, but also articulated in such a way that is immediately relevant to our lives. Hermeneutics is a process that helps Christians to do this. Watch this series if you would like to learn how to interpret Scripture in light of the larger Meta-Narrative, the Big Story of the Bible.
