LB04 Biblical MalpracticeRegister for Courses
September 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This lecture will deal with how the Biblical text and its meaning is all too often misunderstood because it is either wittingly or unwittingly misinterpreted by ignoring such matters as historical situation, cultural context, and the meaning of words in the original Hebrew or Greek text. The focus will be on how such “malpractice” in Biblical interpretation often has significant consequences in humans’ lives and relationships.
