Fairbairn, Patrick - Hermeneutical Manual - Introduction to the Exegetical Study of the NT
Hermeneutics Exegesis Greek Hebrew
This book was originally published as "Hermeneutical Manual - Introduction to the Exegetical Study of the New Testament". Casual, modern readers are afraid of large words, so this book has been reprinted as, "Opening Scripture".
Bible scholars find tremendous value in this book, even today. Non Bible scholars will find value in the hundreds of pages in the section: "Old Testament Scripture in the Writings of the New Testament", where quotes from and paraphrases of the Old Testament appear in the New Testament. Fairbairn provides an excellent commentary on each.
In the Hermeneutical Manual, Patrick Fairbairn teaches readers to thoroughly examine the Bible. He follows the historic Protestant practice of allowing the Scriptures to stand as their own witness and interpreter. The author explains the “analogy of faith,” in understanding the Bible. As summarized in the Westminster Confession (1:9), this principle states: “The infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture is the Scripture itself; and therefore, when there is a question about the true and full sense of any Scripture it must be searched and known by other places that speak more clearly.”
