WHI-1186 | Top Ten Rules of Interpretation (Part 2)

Top Ten Rules of Interpretation (Part 2)

Many of us have memorized Bible verses, but we often remain ignorant of the larger context from which these verses originate. We often lose the forest for the trees. We’ve all heard interpretations of Scripture that reduce the meaning of a text to a kind of spiritual allegory. What are the problems with these ways of interacting with Scripture? We will address these issues and more as we conclude our discussion of the top ten rules of proper biblical interpretation.

Who’s Who at the 2014 White Horse Inn Weekend

One of the most exciting things about our 2014 White Horse Inn Weekend is our special guest speakers who literally come to us from around the world! In addition to Mike, Rod, Kim, and Ken—our regular “cast of characters” from the White Horse Inn—we’re pleased to welcome Greg Koukl, Isaac Shaw, and Hicham Chehab. We hope that these brief introductions to our special guests encourage you to register to attend before the end of the early bird promotional rate on January 31, 2014.

 

Greg Koukl is the host of the syndicated radio program, Stand to Reason. He’s a frequent guest on the White Horse Inn, and we’re proud to work with him in the important areas of apologetics and Christian witness. He’s been featured on many secular and religious news outlets across the country, especially when important religious and ethical issues are at stake. His most recent book, Tactics, is the kind of hands-on guide that Christians need to discuss their faith in the public square. Greg has lectured around the world, and we’re honored to have him join us. His keynote address on Thursday night, “Is God a Religious Pluralist?,” will demonstrate the kind of careful thinking and engaging presentation that has made Greg a trusted voice on issues of Christian theology and apologetics.

  • Thursday night keynote dinner address
  • Friday morning panel discussion

 

Isaac Shaw is a busy man! He is both the executive director of the New Delhi Bible Institute and the senior pastor of the Bible Bhavan Christian Fellowship churches—a family of churches across North India. Isaac is responsible for giving leadership to many young pastors, missionaries, and evangelists who are taking the gospel into areas of North India dominated by Hinduism and Islam. He has overseen the establishment of more than seventy churches. We’re blessed to have a man like Isaac who is serving on the front lines of the Kingdom’s expansion to teach us how to engage our unbelieving family and friends with the unique message of the Christian faith. His keynote address on Friday night, “The False Hope of Hinduism,” will introduce many of us to one of the fastest growing religions in the world.

  • Friday night keynote dinner address
  • Saturday morning seminar
  • Saturday afternoon panel discussion

 

Hicham Chehab’s story of his conversion to Christ is an exciting account of God’s faithfulness in the midst of great conflict. Hicham grew up in Lebanon during that country’s bloody civil war. Raised in a Muslim family and drawn to some of the extremist groups that fought during the war, Hicham’s world was turned upside down when a Christian killed his brother. By the grace of God, Hicham was saved from both his rage and his sin and became a pastor in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. He immigrated to the United States where he now serves as a missionary to Muslim immigrants across the Midwest. His seminar on Saturday morning, “The Mission Field Next Door,” will equip you to understand and witness to your Muslim neighbors and friends.

Defend the Faith – “Can the Bible be Trusted?”

Michael Horton recently sat down and answered five of the most common apologetics questions people get when they share their faith with their friends and family.

WHI-1184 | Understanding & Interpreting Scripture

The Bible isn’t actually a single book, but rather a library of sixty-six different texts, each with its own set of interpretive rules. Some of these books are historical narratives, while others are poetry or wisdom literature, and others are doctrinal expositions. How can we be sensitive to these different genres as we prepare to read and interpret the “library” of Scripture? That’s our topic as we continue the series, How to Read Your Bible.
