ABOUT

This module takes the book of revelation in the New Testament to review hermeneutical principles. We reflect on various hermeneutical positions throughout Church history and how these influence our reading of the revelation. We consider hermeneutical views of the 1st century coming from a Hebrew background and how these direct us to a proper understanding of the message of the New Testament. Implications for Christian practise in today’s church are also drawn.
