TOPIC: What the Bible Means to You vs. What God Means in the Bible

GUEST: Abner Chou, Professor of Biblical Studies, The Master’s University

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

If you have ever been in a group Bible study, you have probably heard an attendee say, “What this passage means to me is…”

With all due respect, it matters not one whit what the Bible means to any given person but rather what God means in the Bible.  The goal of studying Scripture is to understand God’s intent via the human author whom He inspired to write the text.

Hermeneutics is a theological term for interpreting Scripture.  Abner Chou, professor of Biblical studies at The Master’s University and Seminary and editor of What Happened in the Garden is our guest this weekend on The Christian Worldview.  Abner will explain what it means to interpret Scripture with a “hermeneutic of surrender”.

He will also clarify which doctrines of Scripture are primary (i.e. to die over) and which are secondary where Christians can “agree to disagree”.  And he will make the case that correctly interpreting the opening chapters of Genesis is critical to interpreting the rest of Scripture.
