What is the right and freedom of the exegete?
The themes centring around Scripture, i.e. the 'right' way or ways to interpret it, its usage in the church and its authority is very much in discussion in theology today. It is no wonder because the maxim sola Scriptura is so basic to protestant theology that it is called the principium fundamentale vel cognoscendi. The question of the freedom of the exegete of the Bible, arises from the very nature of the Bible itself. Protestantism confesses that the Bible is God's Word to man and yet this Word comes to us in the form of (fallible?) human words written through many ages and sometimes receiving more than one redaction.
