When people interpret the Bible, even though they may have the best motives in the world, they can still read their ideas into the Bible rather than draw out what the author originally intended to mean. Don’t miss the whole point of exegesis. It’s to know and worship God. Dr. DeRouchie and Dr. Naselli will help you exegete the Old Testament and New Testament texts in the Biblical Exegesis Bundle.
For a bundle of important courses that equip students to better understand and teach Scripture, see the Mobile Ed: Studies in Biblical Interpretation Bundle, S.
Upon successful completion you should be able to:
- Understand characteristics that make for a great Bible translation
- Describe the rationale behind interpretive decisions that remain faithful to the intent of the original author
- Recognize key Scriptural phrases and their meaning
- Approach the Old Testament text from multiple helpful scholarly viewpoints
- Identify the genre, translation issues, and key terms of many prominent texts from the Old Testament
- Approach passages of Scripture, looking for elements that uncover their literary content and historical setting
About the Instructors
Jason S. DeRouchie received his PhD at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is associate professor of Old Testament at Bethlehem College and Seminary. He is coauthor of A Modern Grammar for Biblical Hebrew and A Modern Grammar for Biblical Hebrew: Workbook.
Andy Naselli serves as Assistant Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology. He teaches courses primarily at the seminary-level on Greek exegesis, New Testament, biblical theology, and systematic theology. He loves to study and teach how the theological disciplines (exegesis, biblical theology, historical theology, systematic theology, and practical theology) interrelate and culminate in doxology.
Andy earned two PhDs before he turned thirty: a PhD in theology from Bob Jones University and a PhD in New Testament Exegesis and Theology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School under D. A. Carson. He served as Carson’s research assistant from 2006 to 2013 and continues to work with him on various projects, including the theological journal Themelios, for which Carson is editor and Andy is administrator.
Prior to coming to the Bethlehem College & Seminary in 2013, Andy taught New Testament Greek at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and he continues to teach Bible and theology as adjunct faculty at several other seminaries.
Andy and his wife, Jenni, have been married since 2004, and God has blessed them with three girls.
