When I began my theological studies, I had very little understanding of hermeneutics. In fact, I had no idea what the word hermeneutics meant! And yet, hermeneutics is fundamental to the formation of biblical doctrine.
The more I studied hermeneutics, the more I realized how foundational it is in one's theological journey. Furthermore, I discovered that most intrepretive differences in Scripture were generally related to hermeneutics.
