Stay Vigilant!

Bible study can be fun and rewarding. But stay aware! You sadly don't have to look too far for exegetical fallacies. Somehow, even though we should know better, the "once-and-for-all" meaning of the aorist tense is still celebrated in both sermon and commentary. The fact NEVER changes that all of us can be a bit too quick in making assertions that in the end turn out not to be so true or accurate. While driving, accidents can happen even when we're careful. The same is true in exegesis. It always pays to stay vigilant!
