Biblical Assignment Essay
This is an assignment is all about how we interpret Bible. What is the need to interpret it? There is a need of interpreting bible but what is the reason behind it. We have to spot out that reason. There is another argument which will ask the reason of authors supporting the idea of ‘doing theology’. We all also discuss the interpretation of the Kaisers that is ‘three Humpty Dumptys’. We will further discuss the four models of understanding in bible. I will further discuss the summary and meanings of different bible aspects in my own words. Firstly bible was made into sixty forms. There are three different languages.
First is Hebrew which is in concern with the old world. The next language was Aramaic which was half a Hebrew. The next is Greek which is in the new world. The first thing under discussion is that why is there a need of interpretation of bible? Bible is a holy book for christens. This is a book revealed on the Jesus Christ. The reason for the interpretation is very much obvious. This is commonly stated that there is a need of the understanding the words of there God. This is only possible by the interpretation of the bible. We need a full explanation and exposition of the bible so that we could follow the path instructed by God.
The interpretation of bible can help the scriptures and the bible followers. There is an example of it that is the interpretation of bible tells people that not to repeat there wrong deeds. It also clears up the misunderstood words of God. This also helps the followers of the religion to save there time. This is also save them from indulging into wrong habits. They could be guided to the right path and could save there efforts they have already made to do fruitful track down, those efforts which have been turned into infertile and sterile. This further helps the followers to follow it quicker.
It firstly was not like. It was firstly very slowly understood by the followers but later after this helps by scriptures the rate of apprehension was rather increased. This also makes the followers to understand the spiritual truth it have. There was an interpretation which analysis the Israel groups as an ill-advised one. This means that the Israelis are very much stupid. About them, it has been given in the bible ‘who had eyes to see, but did not see, who had ears to hear, but did not hear’. This means that they are watching what is right and what is wrong but they are still doing wrong.
They have the ability to listen to what is right and what is wrong but still they are doing wrong. This means that they have the knowledge of the things regarding what the real truth is but they are still not following what the truth is. So they are likely to be so much stupid. Now there are three important ways that the interpretation could be done. This is called ‘Three Humpty Dumptys’. The first one says was named Rabi Hillel. He has seven rules which mostly say that there should be some logical extension of the verses. The next was named Rabbi Eliezar. He increased the number of rules two thirty-two.
This mainly had the concept of explaining the thoughts of these verses. They need to be deeply explained. They need to give examples of some prophets or daily life to further explain your teachings. The third group was known as Philo. They had there greater concentration on the scriptures or the Christen teachers. According to them the scriptures should have a deeper sense so that the curtains on the truth should be raised with a symbolism so that people could have form belief on there sayings. There were four schools mainly for the interpretation of the bible verses. Out of these four, three were really introduced in ancient times.
These included the Alexandrian, the Antio-chian and the Western. Coming to the first one called the Alexandrian. It was based on the symbolic methods of interpretation and the teaching of verses. This was in concern with the interpretations regarding this earth and the heavens. It described the relationship between the two. The next one was Antio-chian which was in concerned with the theory. The theory should be eligible. It should have contents which could lead to its reality. This could have meanings that can be related to the past as well as the literature of this world.
It also should have facts which could satisfy us spiritually that is our souls should be satisfied and it also should contain facts that should be categorized. The third one was western which was made by joining both the Alexandrian and the Antio-chian. There was a trend set that the verses were to believe on the basis of the theory behind it. This made a confusion between the Jews and the Christens that is the Jews think that the verses were not as pure as they were before but the Christens think that the Jews were only trying to differentiate between the real verses and there meanings given.
The fourth and the final way discovered for interpretation was know as ‘sob’ or the mystical. This means that the passage should have some real meaning or it should be making some sense. Now coming to the meanings of these interpretations, there is a verse which means that ‘what is true of the lesser is true also of the greater. And the restrictions all the days are the restriction on the festival day of the year’. This means that if we are saying truth in a small case like of doing homework by a school boy, is as much appreciates able as of a truth of a big case of something like murder case.
This means that the good deeds entered in your register is the same of both the truth speaking, it is not affected by the level of truth. This also means doing a small good deed is as much as a big good deed so this means there is no size of any deed. A good deed is a good one. The other part of the meaning says that the restrictions applied on us all over the year, like gambling, drinking or telling a lie, is not lifted up on any festival. We can not drink on the day of festival. If the handicap is not to lie in all days of a calendar year than the date of festival will not change this handicap on that particular date.
Another of the meanings is ‘application on the analogy with one provision, or the extension from the specific to the general. ’ This means that the passage has some sort of reality and it should have some logical meanings which could state that the verses are eligible and had some relevant meaning. They should have some logic. As the time passed, there was a great change in the interpreting the bible. The bigger reason for it was that the world war one, which as affected on the development of these interpretation. This is the most important reason that the development of this interpretation was stopped.
There was a full stop on this development. The political reasons were more in concern than the case of this interpretation. In twentieth century there was a great effect of other departments that stopped this work of interpretation. These include the works of famous politicians like Karl and Rudolf. This was also disturbed by the departments like literacy, criticism, philosophy and science as well. The focus was more on these departments and the attention from interpretation was taken away. This was basically disturbed the criticism issue which diverted the attention from interpretation to this factor.
When this criticism was diverted towards bible, there was a bigger problem. There were questions aroused regarding different teachings of bible, although the teachings were true and conceptual but the scriptures were with a lack of resources forcing them to lack of relevant answers. These were the basics that diverted the people’s attention from scriptures and there interpretations. As the chapter thirteen is telling about the reasons for which this change occurred. People have been getting there attentions diverted because of one reason or the other.
People were more interested in social issues than these interpretations. People wanted to know more about what’s happening in there country than what’s happening in the religious teachings. They wanted to know what the fact behind nine-eleven incidents is than they wanted to know about the fact behind not saying any lie. They were more involved in the celebration of Independence Day or Labor Day than they do celebrate a religious festival. This was basically because of the world wars which turned people into socialized one than religious one.
There was another reason discovered by the Jews that the bible was not as authentic know a days as it was before. The information given to those regarding interpretations were not relevant. There was a need of discovering what is the relevant reason for some of the verses and this discovery was stopped because of the reasons mentioned above that is most obviously world war. The effectiveness of the biblical language was decreased as there was least importance given to these terms. They were not as prominent as they were before.
In old times there was great esteem for these language terms as they were considered as the superior one but now after the world war it has been completely changed because the attention of the people of local was diverted to other issues like that of criticism. This issue was also applied as a question mark to these terms setting a trend that these interpretations are not realistic and that they have least fact in it which was not the truth. They were given this tag because of lack of sources about these verses or we can say lack of explanation on these interpretations.
There is a need of exaggeration of the importance of this biblical language. People should be realized the importance of the biblical language as it contains the facts about the spiritual teachings. It makes a person to live a pious and a successful life. They shows the path of righteous, the path people are trying to apply for a number of years and there tries having actually turned into failure. There is great advantage of this into the life of christens as he or she could be religious as well as a successful one. He had success not only in this earthly world but also in heavens.
So this language should be greatly examined and taught to people. This biblical language should be proved through examples in the history. People should be given examples of the past prophets and how they deal the difficulties in there life. Not only the prophets but it can be an example which would support the sayings of the interpretations. This could encourage a follower to come more towards the religion. This also supports the fact that there statements are true and relevant. These interpretations should be taken into daily usage. The meaning should be understood and well explained so that the real use in the life could be estimated.
They should be told what the real use of the meanings is. For example the speaking of truth is an essential part of our life as it helps us demonstrating the difference between the right and the wrong. These are some important and essential works needed to do to exaggerate the biblical language. Not only exaggerating it but also influencing it on the lives of christens so that they could live a happy life with more success coming across there way. This is to be done with the help of scriptures who actually should be deep sensed so that they could answer any question relevantly.
