Jonathan Edwards’s Harmonic Interpretation of Hebrew 12:22-24
Keywords:American Religious History
Scholars have made great strides in recent time to elucidate Jonathan Edwards’ exegesis. Nonetheless, no consensus has arrived on this subject. This is because it is best to describe him as one who practiced exegeses, for he employed multiple strategies or habits of interpretation. One of those habits is canonical exegesis, or as this article proposes, harmonic exegesis. This article describes the three principle elements of Edwards’ harmonic exegesis and employs a case study of Edwards’ Hebrews 12:22–24 sermon-series to demonstrate this interpretive strategy in practice.
