David M King
The author sought to develop and apply a comprehensive Christocentric hermeneutic for preaching the Old Testament. The hermeneutical approaches of Bryan Chapell, Sidney Greidanus, and Graeme Goldsworthy were reviewed and evaluated. A synthesized hermeneutic was developed in which the author sought to capitalize on the strengths and minimize the weaknesses of the three approaches. The resultant hermeneutic was applied in a sermon series that included texts of various genres from the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings.
