Methods & Issues in Biblical Interpretation (BTI 6500 A): Home


God's presence and power must be taken into account from the beginning, 

just as we take into account all that characterizes a human author of any human text. 

We cannot, with perfect precision, analytically isolate God's propositional content from his personal communion.
