Exegesis , the critical interpretation of the biblical text to discover its intended meaning. Both Jews and Christians have used various exegetical methods throughout their history, and doctrinal and polemical intentions have often influenced interpretive results; a given text may yield a number of very different interpretations according to the exegetical presuppositions and techniques applied to it.
The study of these methodological principles themselves constitutes the field of hermeneutics. A brief treatment of exegesis follows. For full treatment, see biblical literature: The critical study of biblical literature: exegesis and hermeneutics.
The other portions of the Bible—prophecy, poetry, proverbs, wisdom writings, epistles—are primarily reflections upon this sacred history and its meaning for the religious communities that grew out of that history. To that extent the nonhistorical writings of the Bible are themselves critical interpretations of the sacred history, and in large measure they form the basis for all other biblical exegesis.
The largest portion of the Bible is the Hebrew Bible , which is common to both Jews and Christians and is grounded in the history of the people of Israel. These are books and portions of books that were excluded from the Hebrew Bible but that appeared in its Greek translation, known as the Septuagint , which was compiled around the 2nd century bce.
The Septuagint includes books translated from Hebrew originals e. Textual criticism is concerned with establishing, as far as is possible, the original texts of the biblical books from the critical comparison of the various early materials available. For the New Testament, the textual materials are Greek manuscripts from the 2nd to the 15th century, ancient versions in Syriac, Coptic, Armenian, Georgian, Ethiopic, and other languages, and citations in early Christian writers. Philological criticism is the study of the biblical languages in respect to grammar , vocabulary, and style, to ensure that they may be translated as faithfully as possible.
Literary criticism classifies the various biblical texts according to their literary genre. It also attempts to use internal and external evidence to establish the date, authorship, and intended audience of the various biblical texts. For example, different strains of tradition in the Pentateuch the first five books of the Hebrew Bible have been connected with different stages in the development of Israelite religion.
In the New Testament, literary criticism has concentrated upon the relationship between the gospels attributed to Matthew, Mark, and Luke, which are called Synoptic i. Tradition criticism attempts to analyze the various sources of the biblical materials in such a way as to discover the oral traditions which lie behind them and to trace their gradual development. Form criticism is to some extent the offspring of tradition criticism and has become the major exegetical method of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Its basic assumption is that literary material, written or oral, assumes certain forms according to the function the material serves within the community which preserves it. Often a narrative will serve a variety of functions within various life settings over a period of time, and its proper analysis will reveal the development of the narrative into its final form. Redaction criticism examines the way the various pieces of the tradition have been assembled into the final literary composition by an author or editor.
Historical criticism places the biblical documents within their historical context and examines them in the light of contemporary documents. History of religions criticism in much the same way compares the religious beliefs and practices expressed by the biblical texts to the trends discernible within world religion in general.
The features of Israelite religion, for example, are often compared with those of other ancient Middle Eastern religions, while early Christianity may be examined in comparison with gnosticism , an esoteric religious philosophy based on the absolute dualism of evil matter and good spirit that was popular in the 1st and 2nd centuries.

The miraculous character of the Aristeas legend might indicate the esteem and disdain in which the translation was held at the time; Greek translations of Hebrew scriptures were in circulation among the Alexandrian Jews. Whatever share the Ptolemaic court may have had in the translation, it satisfied a need felt by the Jewish community in whom the knowledge of Hebrew was waning. Greek scriptures were in wide use by the time of Jesus and Paul of Tarsus early Christianity because most Christian proselytes, God-fearers , and other gentile sympathizers of Hellenistic Judaism could not read Hebrew.

Textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible is living through a period of reconceiving its discipline. Historically text critics, whether they worked on Homer, Moses, Isaiah, Paul, or Shakespeare, tried to produce a text as close as possible to the text that left the author's hand. They agreed that to reconstruct such a text the critic must assess the history of the text's transmission in light of available MSS, expose additions, omissions, and other corruptions, and eliminate them.
- Дэвид. В этот момент в нескольких метрах под помещением шифровалки Стратмор сошел с лестницы на площадку. Сегодняшний день стал для него днем сплошных фиаско.
Камера, подрагивая, словно наехала на него, и кадр не сразу оказался в фокусе. А Смит тем временем безучастно продолжал свои комментарии: - Как вы видите, у Танкадо случился мгновенный сердечный приступ. Сьюзан стало дурно оттого, что она увидела.
Я… понимаю, - тихо сказала она, все еще находясь под впечатлением его блистательного замысла. - Вы довольно искусный лжец. Стратмор засмеялся.
Нужно немедленно вызвать службу безопасности. Я выключаю ТРАНСТЕКСТ! - Она потянулась к клавиатуре. - Не смей прикасаться! - Стратмор рванулся к терминалу и отдернул ее руку. Обескураженная, Сьюзан подалась .
Узкая лестница спускалась к платформе, за которой тоже виднелись ступеньки, и все это было окутано красным туманом. Грег Хейл, подойдя к стеклянной перегородке Третьего узла, смотрел, как Чатрукьян спускается по лестнице. С того места, где он стоял, казалось, что голова сотрудника лаборатории систем безопасности лишилась тела и осталась лежать на полу шифровалки.
Уже в дверях он грустно улыбнулся: - Вы все же поосторожнее. ГЛАВА 67 - Сьюзан? - Тяжело дыша, Хейл приблизил к ней свое лицо. Он сидел у нее на животе, раскинув ноги в стороны. Его копчик больно вдавливался в низ ее живота через тонкую ткань юбки. Кровь из ноздрей капала прямо на нее, и она вся была перепачкана.
- Я же терпеть не могу мотоциклы. Он крикнул парню: - Десять тысяч, если отвезете меня в аэропорт. Тот даже не повернул головы и выключил двигатель.
