history of biblical interpretation

It is going on 10:30 AM Wednesday morning. I am thinking I might take Rudy for a walk someplace on this ugly day. I do not know if it is suppose to rain today. You sure can tell we are in the middle of Autumn already. It usually snows here around November.

I am down in the lower level looking at my books. I have been looking at my books on how the Early Church interpreted the Bible. I am a student of the history of biblical interpretation. Here is a list of some of the books I have looked at recently.

"[15] Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
[16] For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
[17] For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
[18] And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
[19] We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
[20] Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
[21] For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." 2 Peter 1:15-21
