Hermeneutics II - Chapter 5 - Quiz

Quiz, Chapter 5 - Understanding Your Bible, David K. Bernard


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Spiritual illumination and experience operate only individually.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because spiritual illumination and experience can also occur collectively. Many spiritual practices involve group meditation or rituals where individuals come together to connect with a higher power or experience a sense of unity. Additionally, spiritual communities and gatherings provide opportunities for individuals to share their experiences and learn from one another, enhancing their spiritual growth collectively. Therefore, spiritual illumination and experience can occur both individually and collectively.

    There is danger in developing doctrine on the basis of ...

    • A.

      Knowledge

    • B.

      The Word alone

    • C.

      Experience

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Experience
    Explanation
    Developing doctrine solely based on experience can be dangerous because experience is subjective and can vary greatly from person to person. It is important to consider other factors such as knowledge and the Word (referring to religious texts or teachings) when formulating doctrine. Relying solely on personal experience may lead to biased or incomplete understanding, whereas incorporating a broader range of sources can provide a more comprehensive and balanced perspective.

    • A.

      Relevant and applicable

    • B.

      To be thought of separately

    • C.

      Linked to the New Testament

    • D.

      Linked to the Old Testament

    Correct Answer
    A. Relevant and applicable
    Explanation
    Apostolic Pentecostals approach the Bible with the assumption that each passage is relevant and applicable. This means that they believe every part of the Bible has significance and can be applied to their lives and faith. They do not view the passages as separate or disconnected from each other, but rather as a cohesive and meaningful whole. This approach allows them to find guidance, inspiration, and teachings in all parts of the Bible, both Old and New Testament.

    Since the New Testament is written to the church, we can expect that very little of it is not directly applicable to us.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the New Testament is specifically written for the church, which implies that it is intended to be applicable to the believers.

    Correct Answer
    B. The one, mighty God in Jesus Christ
    Explanation
    Apostolic Pentecostals interpret the whole of Scripture in light of the revelation of the one, mighty God in Jesus Christ. This means that they view all of the teachings and messages in the Bible through the lens of Jesus Christ being the one true God. They believe that Jesus is not just a separate entity from God, but that He is actually the manifestation of God Himself. This interpretation shapes their understanding of various theological concepts and informs their beliefs and practices.

      Allegorical applications

    • B.

      Historical significance

    • C.

      Ways to link them to prophecy

    • D.

      Enduring principles that apply to us

    Correct Answer
    D. Enduring principles that apply to us
    Explanation
    The answer "enduring principles that apply to us" is correct because it acknowledges that while specific instructions, covenants, and cultures may have changed since the Scriptures were written, there are still timeless principles that can be applied to our lives today. This suggests that the teachings and lessons found in the Scriptures are not limited to a specific time or culture, but have lasting relevance and can guide our actions and beliefs in the present day.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that it is not a wise decision to judge an individual's experience based on the experience of a corporation.

      God

      The Body

      The historical context

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Spiritual experiences are instructive when they are validated by the body. This means that the physical sensations and reactions experienced during a spiritual encounter can provide evidence and confirmation of its authenticity. The body's response, such as goosebumps, chills, or a sense of peace, can serve as validation that the spiritual experience is genuine. Additionally, the body's physiological and emotional state during the experience can also provide insight into its meaning and significance.
