A double header “catch up” video is posted this week for the Interpreting the Bible course.
Part 9 is a continuation of the examination of the past several weeks of The Golden Rule of interpretation; with further examples to assist us in determining – from the context – when a text should be interpreted figuratively and when not.
Part 10 introduces a new law; The Law of Dual Reference. This law explains that prophetic texts, at times, are fulfilled in more than one historical event. In such cases, the prophet writes as if he speaks of one event, yet the fulfillment reveals that only a portion of the text will be fulfilled at one time.
There are a few manners in which dual reference may unfold. Today’s study in Part 10 will discuss what is probably the more difficult to grasp, the rare Typeographical form of dual reference; when a prophecy speaks of a type, or form, of fulfillment which is thought fulfilled in scripture, but is later revealed to have not been fully fulfilled.
