The purpose of this page is to present a comprehensive and coherent methodology for Biblical interpretation. Many skeptics have complained that the Bible can't tell us anything of any real value because every person interprets it differently. While this is surely an overstatement - there is a great deal contained in the Bible that many Bible-believing Christians do in fact agree on - the reason why there are so many different interpretations is because interpreters don't follow any sensible or consistent method. This naturally leads to inaccurate, inconsistent, illogical and naive interpretations.

With so many different interpretations available, how is anyone supposed to know which is the correct one? By examining the nature of the Bible, the events it records and how it was written, it is possible to come up with a method of interpretation that is sensible and understandable.

The Bible is an historical book - it records people and events in history. Therefore, if we want to correctly interpret it we must understand its historical background and context. The Bible is also written in human language (Koine or Hellenistic Greek, Ancient Hebrew and Aramaic). Therefore, if we want to correctly interpret it we must understand the language (ie. word meanings and grammar) in which it is written.

The sections below contains links to information that will help you study the Bible for yourself and articles which I (Andrew Kulikovsky) have written on various subjects. Any of my articles may be freely downloaded, printed, copied, quoted and distributed to whoever you like as long as they are not sold or changed without my permission and credit is given where credit is due.
