Product Description

Peter Smuts advocates a multi-directional hermeneuticfor the Synoptic Gospels--downwards (immediate context), sideways(parallel traditions), backwards (OT background), and forwards(relevant NT passages).

  • Introduces a way of looking at Bible passages thathelps you understand the true meaning ofa the text
  • This method teaches you to look downward, sideways,backward and forward at the text
  • This is a "how to" book that teaches you how to understand the gospel of Mark rather than a commentary

Publisher's Description

P. W. Smuts advocates a “multi-directional” hermeneutic to the Synoptic Gospels—downwards, sideways, backwards, and forwards—using the Gospel of Mark to illustrate this approach. The downward direction focuses on the immediate literary context of the particular text. The sideways direction focuses on parallels to that text in the other Synoptic Gospels. The backward direction focuses on the Old Testament background to the text. And the forward direction focuses on relevant passages in the rest of the New Testament. This model compels readers to interpret the gospels against the broader sweep of redemptive history.
