We all know the meaning of the word "verbal", but there may by different understandings of the word "plenary."

The explanations already supplied approximate the theological reality. In practice there is sometimes confusion between hermeneutics and exegesis, since one cannot separate theory and practice, while doing (or especially when teaching) practice.
