The question of interpretation across history
How do different cultures understand the Scriptures today in our country? For example, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Latin-Americans might come at the Bible from differing angles. So, too, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Post-Modernists. Last week’s panel is here to pick up where we left off with a discussion revolving around questions such as:
What has been the role of interpretation in the transmission and translation of the Bible?
What are the major interpretative traditions for understanding the Bible across cultures?
How about across time? (Pre-modern, Modern, Postmodern methods)
