Where is significance? Postmodern ideas: there is not ultimate significance in the text, the reader is creating the significance of the text. There is no absolute interpretation, there are as many interpretations as readers. Power can make one particular interpretation normative.
Biblical interpretation. Contributions of Anselm, Abelard and Aquinas to biblical hermeneutics, followed by Luther's and Calvin's contributions. Rejection of allegorical interpretation, adoption of literal interpretation and of the Sola Scriptura principle.
Great Sermon!(36th on my odyssey) Thankyou dear brother Spellman for this challenging as well as encouraging sermon. I am on an odyssey of listening to a sermon from each book of the Bible,preached by a speaker whom i have not heard before.
This is a blessed venture.
May the Lord be pleased to bless your ministry to the glory of His name.
