Dr. Kira ends his presentation with a practical look at how the doctrine of revelation impacts various academic disciplines. As an initiative of the Center for Biblical Integration, this talk is the third of six Theology Seminars being offered to Cedarville faculty fall of 2019.

Theology Seminar Session 4: Hermeneutics

The doctrine of revelation and Scripture shows us the character of God's Word, that is inspired, inerrant, infallible, and authoritative. That understanding demands an attentiveness to the text of Scripture that yields a right interpretation of what is said. In this Theology Seminar, Dr. Ched Spellman, Associate Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, addresses key facets of biblical interpretation that will lead to an accurate understanding of the text of Scripture. As an initiative of the Center for Biblical Integration, this talk is the fourth of six Theology Seminars being offered to Cedarville faculty fall of 2019.
