comment Is “kill” a valid translation for Exodus 20:13 (Thou shalt not kill)?
@Richard I agree with the logic of your statement on the command nature of the phrase.

comment What is the difference between exegesis and hermeneutics?
Yes, to a point. From my point of view, many theologians pack some subjectivity inappropriately into their hermeneutic work, but yes your comment is correct (to my level of understanding).

comment Whose meaning are we trying to find?
The implication here is that the human author's intent is God's intent. Meaning, the act of writing Scripture was divinely inspired through a sovereign God who led the authors to write what he wanted them to. Of course, as Paul was writing to the Romans for example he had a meaning that he was trying to convey to that church. This view holds that the meaning he was communicating to them is the divinely inspired meaning that God wanted in Scripture.
