Take the Hermeneutics Quiz

Last year, I took a self-assessment quiz published in Leadership journal that was created by New Testament Professor Scott McKnight. "The quiz," in the author's word, "is designed to surface the decisions we make, perhaps without thinking about them, and how we read out Bible and don't red our Bible."

I found it helpful, and now you can take it free online. See where you fall on the theological spectrum when it comes to interpreting the Bible. Check it out here. One caveat: You probably should take the test first and then read Scott's explanation and scoring instructions.

Let me know if your theological placement seemed on target.

OK, RevJohn. What did you score? i scored 86 which I don't suppose is a surprise!

My score was 91. This is a slightly higher number than when I took it the first time. Maybe we get more progressive with age.

I think you are right. I like to think it is the wisdom resulting from age and study. I intend to keep studying, and there is nothing I can do about the aging!

Finally got a chance to take the quiz. Score: 89. Pretty progressive for someone whose Sunday school class today proclaimed the impossibility of the existence of dinosaurs! Seriously.
