Messianic Apologetics

Addressing the Theological and Spiritual Issues of the Broad Messianic Movement

Hermeneutics (Interpretation)

Messianic Apologetics editor John McKee discusses a very complicated subject matter: ranging from various bodies of extra-Biblical materials commonly employed for interpreting Scripture, to what many might consider questioning the “sufficiency of Scripture.”

Does extra-Biblical literature—ranging from Ancient Near Eastern mythology, classical Greco-Roman works, Second Temple and post-Second Temple Jewish works, and early Christians writings—have any role to play in our theology?

Many people within today’s Messianic sphere of influence recognize the need to interpret the letters of the Apostle Paul from the vantage point of their First Century recipients in the Mediterranean. Yet, many of the same are unwilling to read the Torah from the vantage point of its original Ancient Israelite recipients in the Ancient Near East.
