Robert Chisholm on Divine Hardening

The following blurb comes from the SEA site,

We do not always announce in the blog the addition of specific articles to the site’s article database. (We regularly add articles to the site, and upon being added they appear in the “Recent Articles” box on the right side of our home page. After an article is pushed off the recent articles list by newer articles, it can only be found through the topical index or through the site’s search function.) But we wanted to draw your attention to a particularly excellent article that we are adding today by Robert Chisholm Jr. on hardening in the Old Testament. I think it includes the best overall single treatment of the hardening of Pharaoh’s heart available, though it covers more than just the case of Pharaoh. We want to thank the journal that published the article, Bibliotheca Sacra, for granting us permission to make the article available, as well as a few other articles that have appeared in the journal and are relevant to the Arminian/Calvinist debate.

Simple Interpretive Principles

Hermeneutics is a fancy word theologians use for basic principles of interpretation.  This is an important topic for those who are serious about rightly understanding what the inspired authors of the Bible meant to convey.  Entire books have been written on the subject, but I thought I would point you towards a very short and helpful overview put together by Bethyada over at True Paradigm.  I would further encourage every Christian to invest in a book or two dealing with hermeneutics.  There is a lot of confusion out there today, because many Christians have no idea how to properly divide the word of truth.
