Interpreting The Bible 13 – The Law of First Mention

This entry is part 12 of 14 in the series Interpreting the Bible (Vlog)

(This is a continuation of the “Interpreting The Bible“ video blog series.  This post assumes the prerequisite watching of earlier videos in the series.  Click the link above to watch the entire series up to this week’s installment.)

This week’s lesson focuses on a law known as “First Mention.”  This law is simple in its principle, but profound in its application.  This law essentially uses the concept of “precedent” to assist the biblical interpreter in the proper application of a theological term or truth.  If, then, I know how a term or concept has been used earlier in scripture, I can properly interpret a later understanding of the same term or principle.
