Exegesis and hermeneutics are terms often found only in seminary textbooks. Many Christians have never even heard these words. But they are vital principles for understanding the Bible, because they concern how we interpret the Scriptures. The fact is, we all interpret the Bible every time we read it, so we need to have some principles to rely on so that we're interpreting it correctly.

Use this resource with your small group, your entire church, or for your own instruction.
