Hermeneutics - Part 1

Hermeneutics-Part1

The lesson on November 1, 2020 was part 1 of the "Hermeneutics" study.  In this opening lesson, Wayne provides us some insights into the word and how the Greeks believed some of the myth of Hermes in that he could quickly deliver the message between the gods having winged sandals.  We were introduced to where the Greek word shows up in scripture.  There were three Greek words used to describe interpret and we convered some of the scriptures where it was used. We also used this with the two disciples on the way to Emmaus.  With proper interpretation we receive the proper understanding of scripture just like it was shown in Luke 24:45-47 KJV "45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem."  The scripture reading was from Acts 8:27-31 KJV

"27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, 28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. 29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? 31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him."
