Chapter Summary

In his presentation on the relationship between the unity of the church and the pure preaching of the Word of God, Professor Heron seriously makes us rethink "what we mean or intend by the pure preaching of the Word - and what that implies for our understanding of the unity of the church". In this connection, this chapter extends the main thesis a little bit in the author's own way. This may be understood as the way in which he interprets the term 'the pure preaching of the Word,' and its implication for his understanding of the unity of the church. The author argues that what he meant by 'biblical theological hermeneutics' is that the scriptures be interpreted according to the intention of the text of the scriptures, and that due to the attempt to respect the intention of the text of the scriptures, every interpretation of the text should be respected.
