Biblical Wrecksegesis

Definition: When faulty interpretation and exegetical fallacies make a shipwreck of Scripture.

The above quote is found in Fee and Stuart’s How to Read the Bible for All it’s Worth.1 The slide however is a product of the “Visual Copy” feature of the new Logos 6. Logos is arguably the greatest Bible study software in the world—it’s definitely got to be the priciest—and is highly recommended for all scholars, academics and serious students of the Bible. It is one of the tools that can help you to get at the plain meaning of the text and make good sense of it. Which is the very reason why, in addition to pursuing my Bachelor of Theology degree at Laidlaw College (see the “old blog” here), I pushed the boat out even further and, with the help of a major academic discount, gave it to myself as an early Christmas present two weeks ago.
