Presented by Dr.Christopher Cone, Research Professor of Bible and Theology, Southern California Seminary, to the Symposium on Scripture, Hermeneutics, and Language, San Diego State University, April 13, 2015.

“…If Genesis were univocal regarding hermeneutic method, that single voice would go a long way in helping us understand how the Author intended for us to interpret the Scriptures. Genesis would be a guiding light, providing the time-tested descriptive model foundational to our Scriptural hermeneutics…”

image1Integrating Exegesis and Exposition is a handbook introducing Biblical study (exegesis) and the communication of the Bible in preaching and teaching (exposition). This method encourages communicators to incorporate the process of Bible study into the presentation of the message, so that listeners discover not only how to understand the portion of Scripture being communicated at that moment, but also so that they can develop their own skills in Bible study.

The premise of Integrating Exegesis and Exposition is that the processes of study, practice, and communication of the Bible are interconnected. The relationship between these suggests that to encourage transformation by the renewing of the mind, communicators of the Bible ought to take a more holistic and integrated approach to handling the Bible – an approach that is modeled in the Bible itself.

Dr. Christopher Cone serves as Chief Academic Officer and Research Professor of Bible and Theology at Southern California Seminary. Dr. Cone formerly served as President of Tyndale Theological Seminary and Biblical Institute, Professor of Bible and Theology, and as a Pastor of Tyndale Bible Church.

Review by Dr. Arnfield Cudal
“When our understanding of the Bible has been spoon-fed to us, laced with presuppositions, and marketed to our faulty preferences, why do we wonder when we possess a lackluster, if not befuddled, view of Scripture? Here, Christopher Cone asserts that we start anew – not with a new and novel method of interpretation, but with a timeless hermeneutic that works according to patterns demonstrated in the Bible itself. The Bible contains its own built-in hermeneutic and governs its own presuppositions and worldview. It is a beacon that stands on its own. Those seeking the truth – no matter how unpalatable or painful – will stand to benefit greatly from the steps outlined. Integrating Exegesis and Exposition is a great tool that will help us accomplish that.” –Arnfield Cudal, MBA, Ph.D, Editor, HARK Publications
