A new study was started on November 1, 2020 on the topic of "Hermeneutics". The goal for this study is to teach how we should come to the proper interpretation of scripture so we may rightly divide the word of God. The Greek word for Hermeneutics has the Greek god "Hermes" in it and reflects what they believed about him in myth, which was that Hermes functioned as the emissary and messenger of the gods and was often presented as the son of Zeus and Maia, the Pleiad. He is able to move quickly and freely between the worlds of the mortal and the divine, aided by his winged sandals and winged helmet. This study doesn't care about the myth but does strive to understand the Greek "Διερμηνεύω: “to Interpret”. Follow along as we present the technique on how to intepret the scriptures so you will be approved unto God.
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
