These two words (Hermeneutics and Exegesis) have seen so popularity on this forum, courtesy of Syrup. While I had some superficial familiarity with these words, I am not up to speed with the methodology yet. I have a number of questions about these arts, directed particularly at its advocates (Syrup and Imhotep).
1) Are these reliable methods of understanding ancient text?
2) have these been empirically validated?
3) Are they and text from the bible that have been illuminated by these techniques and subsequently validated by independent means?
4) Are the parts of the bible that do not admit of Hermeneutics and Exegesis analysis?
In the meantime, I shall do more research on the subject.
