Competency 3. “Gain a basic grasp of the discipline of exegesis (basic procedures for studying and interpreting the Scriptures) as well as a basic proficiency level in accurately drawing out the author's intended meaning from the text and relating it to the twenty-first century.”
- You may use any evidence you have to demonstrate competency.
- Again , no project or Socratic discussion question specifically makes reference to “the discipline of exegesis,” but Units 3 and 4 are all about exegesis. And most of the readings in Units 1 and 2 provide lots of insight about exegesis. This competency is about the procedures for studying the Bible in a manner that finds accurate interpretation and makes appropriate application, paying special attention to special issues related to particular genres of biblical literature.
