Ex•e•ge•sis

Coming from the Greek word exēgeomai, which means to lead or draw out, exegesis is the art and science of drawing out the original intended meaning of a text. We cannot understand what a particular Scripture means for us today if we have not first taken the time to come to grips with the original inspired meaning of that passage. Exegeting each text in its grammatical, historical, and literary context is essential if we are to accurately see the difference that it ought to make in our own world.
