All Christian ministers are professional Bible interpreters. FOUNDATIONAL. Bible interpretation is foundational for all ministry and all theological disciplines.

Major Structural Relationship (MBS, 50-59; BSTW 2, 36-43.) 1. Primary Relationships (Semantic Relationships) a. Recurrence: repetition of same or similar terms, phrases, or themes. XX Example: XXX X X X XXX X recurrence of love in 1 John Yahwehs Knowing b. Contrast: association of things whose differences are stressed by the writer But, However

Blessing of Perishing of the Godly the Wicked 1 3 4 5 6 Examples: Psalm 1 (above): Recurring contrasts between Light and Darkness and between faith and unbelief in the Gospel of John. c. Comparison: association of things whose similarities are stressed by the writer. Like... as... Example: Book of Joel is structured by a comparison

between the locust plague and the Day of the Lord. d. Climax: movement toward a high point of culmination Implicit: Preparation/Rea lization Example: The book of Ezekiel Contrast reaches its climax in the closing (between the lower & the statement: The

name of the city higher pts.) is Yahweh is There! climaxingthe Often theme Causationof Yahwehs presence (and lack thereof in Jerusalem) e. Cruciality: employs the pivot, that occasions a radical reversal or change of direction (i.e., radical contrast associated with specific point). A vs. -A Example: The Book of Esther is structured around the pivot. Movement to

Actual destruction of destroy Mordecai Jews enemies and and the Jews (1-4) Implicit: exaltation of Mordecai (7-10) Causation and Esthers appeal to King Ahasuerus (5-6) Moves along a line involving the same item, theme or Contrast X and the Jews. issue, here the fate of Mordecai f. Concession: Gives unexpected consequence to an item which contrasts with an anticipated (and often unstated) consequence, i.e., A >> B vs. [-B].

Although, even though, in spite of the fact that... Example: Romans 5:8 We were Expected sinners Result: No one, (even though) including Christ, would die for us. Concession Contrast Unexpected Result: Christ died for us. (still)

g. Particularization: The movement from general to particular. Examples: Identificational Isaiah 1:1 -- Vision of Isaiah (general) Implicit: Preparation/ Isaiah 1:2-66:24 -- particulars of the Realization vision (general description, particular expression) Logical Book of Hebrews General claims regarding Christ, 1:1-4 (General)

Specific expansion of these general claims,1:5-13:21 (Particulars) Biographical / Geographical Book of Genesis Focus: entire human race, whole world 1 Focus: 1 man (Abraham) and 1 place (land of promise)

11 12 50 i. Causation - Movement from cause to effect, from reason to result. Examples: Logical - Book of Hebrews characterized by a number of instances of in which the movement from cause to effect is inferential, i.e.,totally in reasoning, e.g., Heb 5:1 - 7:28 give the basis for the logical inference/conclusion of 8:1 ff Since...then, so then... therefore... Hortatory - Book of Romans Theological argument re: justification by faith

Implicit: Preparation/ (Ch. 1-11) Realization (CAUSE) Consequent exhortations (Ch. 12-15) (EFFECT) Historical -- Book of Acts Coming of the Holy Spirit (ch.2) (CAUSE) Universal witness (chs. 3-28) (EFFECT)

j. Substantiation - movement from effect to cause Gives the reasons for, the basis of the preceding material Effect: the adversity and the rise to power of Joseph Gen. 37 - 49 Cause: Gods 50 Purpos e Genesis 50:19-20 explains the suffering of Joseph and the behavior of others around him finally or at

least in part in terms of the purpose of God. Effect: the lifting up of the Son for life John 3:14-15 Cause: the love of God in giving the Son 3:16 Key conjunctions: for, because, since often introduce the substantiation k. Instrumentation: Movement from means to end Two types of Instrumentation: +Statement of Purpose (In order that, so that) Example: The book of Deuteronomy repeatedly describes the purpose, or end, for obeying the law

(4:40; 5:29, 33, etc.). +Statement of Means (Through, by means of). Example: In the Book of Exodus, Moses is the means (or agent) of Yahwehs deliverance of his people. l. Preparation/Realization (or introduction): Background or setting for events or ideas. (vs. particularization or causation) Example: Account of Jeremiahs calling and commissioning to prophetic office is background/setting

(1:1-19) cf. - Genesis 1:1-2:3 For the description Jeremiahs work and oracles (2:1-52:34) 2:4-50:26. m. Summarization: Abridgment (summing up) either preceding or following a unit of material. Example: Judges 2:6-3:6 summarizes the individual accounts of the judges in 3:7- 16:13. n. Interrogation: Question or Problems

followed by the Answer or Solution Question Answer Example: Psalm 24: Who shall all Ascend? Problem Solution Example: Book of Ruth Naomis emptiness (problem) (solution) 12

4 harvest, child, fullness 2. Auxiliary Relationships (Rhetorical Relationships) a. Interchange: alternating of blocks of material in an A-B-A-B arrangement. Example: the alternating descriptions of the Northern and Southern kingdoms in the Books of Kings; of Hannah and her son Samuel and Eli and his sons in 1 Samuel. b. Inclusio: repetition of same phrase, etc., at the beginning and end of a unit, producing a bracket or envelop effect. Example: Mt. 19:30 // 20:16 first...last,

Ps. 103:1 // 22 Bless the Lord, O my soul! Caution: look for verbatim or nearly verbatim repetition. c. Chiasm: repetition of elements in an inverted (X) order: A-B-C-B1-A1 Example: Mk 8:35 lose...save...save...lose Named for Greek chi. d. Intercalation: insertion of one literary unit into another literary unit. Example: Genesis 38: the story of Judah and Tamar is intercalated into the story of Joseph and his brother Joseph and Bros.

37 Contrast Judah &Tamar 38 Joseph and Brothers Joseph faithful to God in all matters, esp. sexual purity and preservation of covenant people Judah promiscuous; & unconcerned about covenant line 39
