Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the theological and exegetical approaches, and talks about canonical criticism. It reviews the article "The Divine Spiration of Scripture", which presents and criticizes Andrew McGowan's work on Scripture, especially his view of inerrancy. Lee Martin McDonald looks at three sources that can be used as evidence about the origin and stabilization of the New Testament canon: the codex manuscripts and the writings that they included; the textual forms found in these manuscripts; and translations of the Bible. The chapter outlines the hermeneutics methods, and presents the Biblical interpretation and its basic perspectives and individual problems. It also discusses historical-critical methods, literary studies, contextual exegesis and philosophical approaches.

Keywords: Bible; canonical criticism; exegetical approaches; New Testament canon; theological foundations
