Term Thursday (30)


Verse of the Day
"O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit." - Psalms 30:3



Today's Theological Term
"ALLEGORICAL HERMENEUTICS - Developed by the Alexandrian School of Clement and Origen in the third century, this approach obscures the true meaning of Scripture by assuming that every passage has four or five meanings.  Also called the mystical or spiritual method, it holds that the true meaning of Scripture lay hidden below the literal, obvious meaning.  The Alexandrian School saw the Bible as full of allegory and symbolism."*

* From Speaking the Truth in Love by Robert Dalton.  Copyright 1999 Baptist Vision Publications (out of print)
