Exegesis & Eisegesis

Every time I get the opportunity to teach from the Scriptures and take questions from the audience (both physically and virtually), there is almost always a need that comes up – the need for us to be trained to handle God’s Word correctly.

It shows in the nature of some of the questions that are asked that there is a gap to be filled in this area.

Exegesis focuses on drawing out meaning directly from the Scriptures rather than forcing our own preconceptions into the text and looking for Scriptures to support our own views, not God’s.

Consider this a modest attempt to start addressing that need within the Church and the larger believing world.
