comment What does it mean that “Scripture interprets Scripture”?
Ah, I see what you mean. My conservative protestant ears are so used to hearing of the rule of faith in connection with "scripture interprets scripture" that I forget that the concepts are not always so tightly linked.

comment Which hermeneutical approaches support a literal interpretation of the Creation account?
I'm not arguing for two sites. Rather, I'm saying that questions that are actually about hermeneutics are no less on-topic than questions about exegesis. Your point about the question being overly broad, OTOH, is well taken.

Lance, to see them as the same is simply ignoring the meaning of the words. See this question: hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/36/…

comment What is a Horizon of Understanding and how can it be applied to understanding the Bible?
So, then, if my horizon and (say) Paul's horizon are separated by a couple thousand years, a language, culture, etc., are we hopelessly prone to misunderstanding each other? Or are you saying that by working to grasp the culture, I am moving toward Paul's horizon and thus I can understand his letters from his perspective.

@LanceRoberts 1. This is absolutely a hermeneutical question--asking what hermeneutical principals support that interpretation. 2. Your example is not even a hermeneutical question.
