The purpose of this channel:
This Channel is not about a religious denomination or a religion and their pet-doctrines, nor is about a man such as myself. I am nothing, I have no power to heal, save, or to make whole, It is Jesus Christ alone who heals, saves, and make whole. This Channel is for the glory of Jesus Christ and an outlet for the Holy Spirit to provide in-depth and comprehensive Bible studies for those who desire a deeper look into Scripture; and for those who are puzzled having many unanswered Questions who desire a deeper understanding of biblical topics that is crucial to life in everyday living.
And to address the source of the many different views of the Bible among different groups! There is two principles of interpreting Scripture, one is Eisegesis and the other is Exegesis. 'What is the difference between exegesis and eisegesis?' Answer: Exegesis and eisegesis are two conflicting approaches in Bible study.
Exegesis is the exposition or explanation of a text based on a careful, objective analysis. The word exegesis literally means 'to lead out of.' That means that the interpreter is led to his conclusions by following the text. The opposite approach to Scripture is eisegesis, which is the interpretation of a passage based on a subjective, non-analytical reading. The word eisegesis literally means 'to lead into,' which means the interpreter injects his own ideas into the text, making it mean whatever he wants.
Second Timothy 2:15 commands us to use exegetical methods: 'Present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.' An honest student of the Bible will be an exegete, allowing the text to speak for itself. Eisegesis easily lends itself to error, as the would-be interpreter attempts to align the text with his own preconceived notions. Exegesis allows us to agree with the Bible; eisegesis seeks to force the Bible to agree with us.
The process of exegesis involves
(1.) Observation: what does the passage say?
(2.) Interpretation: what does the passage mean?
(3.) Correlation: how does the passage relate to the rest of the Bible? and
(4.) Application: how should this passage affect my life?
Eisegesis, on the other hand, involves
(1.) Imagination: what idea do I want to present?
(2.) Exploration: what Scripture passage seems to fit with my idea? and
(3.) Application: what does my idea mean?
Notice that, in eisegesis, there is no examination of the words of the text or their relationship to each other, no cross-referencing with related passages, and no real desire to understand the actual meaning. Scripture serves only as a prop to the interpreter's idea.
Obviously, only exegesis does justice to the text. Eisegesis is a mishandling of the text and often leads to a misinterpretation. Exegesis is concerned with discovering the true meaning of the text, respecting its grammar, syntax, and setting. Eisegesis is concerned only with making a point, even at the expense of the meaning of words.
