It is the never-ending task of Christian scholarship to interpret the sacred Scriptures in the light of an increasing understanding of the situation contemporary to their writing. The task is attempted anew in each generation, and no single pronouncement upon a given book is accepted as final. The men of each generation desire also to interpret the Scriptures so that they speak relevantly to their own day. Such is the task of this study.
