This investigation is prompted first of all by the controversy within the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod concerning the use of historical criticism as a legitimate method of interpreting the Bible. But it is also important to ascertain whether the method is strictly a classroom discipline or if the procedure has tangible benefits for the work of the Christian minister. If the method does assist one in understanding the theological message of the Biblical words, then its potential value for the parish pastor in his varied ministries is heightened.
The purpose of this investigation, therefore, is to determine if historical criticism contributes toward understanding the theological message of the Sacred Scriptures. In attempting to discover what contributions, if any, the method might make for such understanding, the following procedure will be employed.
