Wow! This course is so good! I highly recommend this course. Thank you Logos and thank you Andrew (Andy) Naselli who has done a fantastic job... well done!
- Richard, would you say that Dr. Naselli takes a pre-enlightenment approach, or is his hermeneutics like most conservative modern approaches? For example, does he teach there are more than one meaning to the text or does he teach only one meaning? How much emphasis does he put on typology? How much continuity between the OT and NT does he embrace? Does he hold to sensus plenior?
- Michael S. One of the things he emphasizes is understanding the original meaning that the author intended to convey to the original audience before trying to apply it to ourselves. But as for sensus plenior, I don't really remember him talking much about that one way or the other. In the Biblical Theology section, he does talk about the continuity between the OT and NT and says that while we should read OT passages with the original context in mind, we also can't neglect the context of the NT as well. So, I do think he believes in sensus plenior simply because he encourages seeing NT themes such as salvation in OT passages even though they wouldn't have been fully understood at the time of writing. There just isn't a huge emphasis put on it probably because it comes more into play in the OT than the NT.
