Exegesis and hermeneutics (slide share)

  1. 1. Exegesis and Hermeneutics A Brief Comparison By Karla J. Franko Religion 100 Crafton Hills College
  2. 2. Exegesis Term = Definition i.e. Function Essence Exegesis = To Translate To Draw Out What the Text Says
  3. 3. Hermeneutics Term = Definition i.e. Function Essence Hermeneutics = To Interpret To Read Into What the Text Means
  4. 4. Example: “It’s raining cats and dogs” • Exegetical Translation: Cats and puppies are falling from the sky. (The translation process is not designed to give meaning but merely to give a word for word translation…it is a literal rendering of the phrase.) • Hermeneutical Interpretation: Its pouring outside! (Often translations get confused with interpretations. Sometimes a translation is taken literally, without consulting cultural context and/or colloquialism. ) Compiled by Karla J. Franko, 2014
