About Us: SCRIPTUREMAN.COM is established as a Bible-believing
Christian ministry to set forth the approach to life that is founded upon the Word
of God, the Scriptures comprising both Old and New Testaments of the Bible.
The site is maintained by and is an extension of the pastoral ministry of:
Our Mission: To present as accurate as possible
an understanding of the Bible that is true to itself and the Lord who wrote it with
the end result of providing directives, answers, and a well lighted path for eternal
life and living abundantly before the Lord God.
Our belief is that God intended His Word to have ONE correct meaning or interpretation. We do not pretend to have that meaning in all areas. However, it is our goal to try to come to that meaning by careful Exegesis. Exegesis is the science of Bible Interpretation that takes into account at least three important principles: (1) The Historical Background of when the Bible was written to discern word and custom meanings; (2) The original Old Testament Hebrew, Aramaic and New Testament Koine Greek languages in which the Scriptures were originally composed; and (3) Allowing by comparison of Scripture with Scripture, the Bible to be the best interpreter of Itself.
Based upon a sound exegesis of the Scriptures will come the practical directives and answers that can change both individual lives and society to fulfill the promise of Jesus that He came to bring LIFE and LIFE more abundantly (John 10:10b).
