We learn of her impressions of the family, the sisters being warm and inviting, but their brother St John, displays a different character. His reserve, quick judgements, distrust and attention to outward appearance are readily obvious. When feeling a little better, Jane makes her way to the kitchen, where she meets Hannah.
Exegesis is the branch of theology which investigates and expresses the true sense of Sacred Scripture. The exegete does not inquire which books constitute Sacred Scripturenor does he investigate their genuine text, nor, again, does he study their double authorship.
He accepts the books which, according to the concurrent testimony of history and ecclesiastical authority, belong to the Canon of Sacred Scripture. Obedient to the decree of the Council of Trenthe regards the Vulgate as the authentic Latin version, without neglecting the results of sober textual criticism, based on the readings found in the other versions approved by Christian antiquity, in the Scriptural citations of the Fathers, and in the more ancient manuscripts.
With regard to the authorship of the Sacred Books, too, the exegete follows the authoritative teaching of the Church and the prevalent opinions of her theologians on the question of Biblical inspiration. Not that these three questions concerning the Canon, the genuine text, and the inspiration of Sacred Scriptures exert no influence on Biblical exegesis: The early Reformers were wont to claim that the genuine text of the inspired and canonical books is self-sufficient and clear.
This contention does not owe its origin to the sixteenth century. The exegetical results flowing from the supposed clearness of the Bible may be inferred from the fact that one century after the rise of the Reformation Bossuet could give to the world two volumes entitled, "A History of the Variations of the Protestant Churches".
A Protestant theologianS. Werenfels, sets forth the same truth in a telling epigram: Men open this book, their favourite creed in mind; Each seeks his own, and each his own doth find. There is sometimes in such passages a fullness and a hidden depth of meaning which the letter hardly expresses and which the laws of grammatical interpretation hardly warrant.
Moreover, the literal sense itself frequently admits other senses, adapted to illustrate dogma or to confirm morality. Wherefore, it must be recognized that the Sacred Writings are wrapt in a certain religious obscurity, and that no one can enter into their interior without a guide; God so disposing, as the Holy Fathers commonly teach, in order that men may investigate them with greater ardour and earnestness, and that what is attained with difficulty may sink more deeply into the mind and heart; and, most of all, that they may understand that God has delivered the Holy Scripture to the Churchand that in reading and making use of His word, they must follow the Church as their guide and their teacher.
But it is not our purpose so much to prove the need of Biblical exegesis as to explain its aim, describe its methods, indicate the various forms of its results, and outline its history.
Exegesis aims at investigating the sense of Sacred Scripture ; its method is contained in the rules of interpretation; its results are expressed in the various ways in which the sense of the Bible is wont to be communicated; its history comprises the work done by Christian and Jewish interpreters, by Catholics and Protestants.
We shall endeavour to consider these various elements under the four heads: Sense of Sacred Scripture; II.
Sense of Sacred Scripture In general, the sense of Sacred Scripture is the truth actually conveyed by it.
We must well distinguish between the sense and the signification of a word. A good dictionary will give us, in the case of most words, a list of their various possible meanings or significations; but no reader will be tempted to believe that a word has all these meanings wherever it occurs.
The context or some other restrictive element will determine the meaning in which each word is used in any given passage, and this meaning is the sense of the word. The signification of the word is its possible meaning; the sense of a word is its actual meaning in any given context.
A sentence, like a word, may have several possible significations, but it has only one sense or meaning intended by the author. Here, again, the signification denotes the possible meaning of the sentence, while the sense is the meaning which the sentence here and now conveys.
In the case of the Bibleit must be kept in mind that God is its author, and that Godthe Sovereign Lord of all things, can manifest truth not merely by the use of words, but also by disposing outward things in such a way that one is the figure of the other.
In the former case we have the literal sense; in the latter, the typical cf. Literal sense What is the literal sense? The literal sense of Sacred Scripture is the truth really, actually, and immediately intended by its author.Type or paste a DOI name into the text box.
