Interpretation is the action of explaining the meaning of a text, but what happens when interpreters are wrong? This class covers some of the most misunderstood prophecies in the Bible. Does Micah chapter 5 describe the birthplace of a coming ruler? Does Hosea chapter 11 foretell of a redemptive figure’s trip out of Egypt? Does Jeremiah 31:14 have to do with the slaughter of children in Bethlehem? Do Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28 describe the original position and subsequent fall of Lucifer? Does Joel 2:32 (3:5 in Hebrew) provide a formula for eternal salvation? Interpretation must begin with the words of the text, and derive meaning from the context of those words.
