In this article, the author wrestles with concepts of meaning and the divine-human authorship of Scripture. The main argument of the essay is that there may be a development of the divine meaning of an individual text of Scripture as the canon grows. However, the original meaning is never lost. He argues that God can intend more in a passage of Scripture than the human author intends. He also summarizes the changes in E. D.
This article looks at the theory of deconstructionism and its emphasis on subjectivism (the meaning rests with the reader) and the theory of authorial intention and its emphasis on objectivism (the meaning rests with the intentions of the author). The author disusses the impact these two theories have on hermeneutics, and proposes an alternative.
