Description

The Bible has been interpreted for thousands of years, but not always in the way that we interpret it today. In recent past, we have tended to ignore the exegesis of the early church, assuming that they did not know how to read the Bible. This presentation simply says, “Let’s talk about that.” What are the main differences between a patristic and a modern approach to exegesis? What is gained and lost in each approach? How might the patristic approach enrich the life of the church today? These are some of the main themes that will be considered and developed throughout the symposium.
