Hermeneutics Quiz

I found a quiz last night through Expository Thoughts site.

Click here to take the quiz.

Then, if you would, come back and leave me your result on the comment section.

(I scored as a "Single Meaning, Multiple Contexts and Referents view," though I must confess I didn't like the way a number of the questions were worded. With multiple choice, you are often left to choose an answer that doesn't really express it like you would, but comes the closest. Felt like that happened a lot.)

I agree with you in being frustrated at how multiple choice boxes you into answers that you don't agree with. "You stopped beating your wife: A) Last year, B) Last month, C) Yesterday"

The survey said I came closest to fuller meaning, single goal. But I also had a hard time reconciling my exact answer with the multiple answered offered. There wasn't exactly a Vossian/ Ridderbos method offered.

I would take the quiz, but I would not understand what any of it meant anyways! LOL!

single meaning unified referents view

i, too, would like to quibble with the wording, but for what it's worth, there are my results.

Single view, unified referents. thought the questions were overly leading and overly vague at the same that possible?

I got the same result as you - and would agree that I felt penned in a little too much by the wording on a couple of the questions. Interesting exercise nonetheless.

Multiple contexts and referents for me, too.
