Abstract

The bible is read in the surface value but also read with science of interpretation. While the writers of the Bible were spiritually inspired by God, it is physically designed in human cultural milieus. Biblical scholars interpret the bible with various approaches with a view to making it acceptable to the contemporary man. Therefore, using the expository model as a method, the aim of this paper is to examine the place of biblical research in pastoral ministry. The paper showed that historical critical methods, literary analysis method, tradition based approach, human sciences approach and contextual approach are being adopted by modern scholars in biblical research. The work also showed that biblical researchers can source for materials from field work, secondary sources and electronic materials. The paper argued that pastoral ministry goes beyond spirituality and cuts across critical study of the bible with the aim to doing correct biblical interpretation for the church of God and to correct false teachings and wrong application of biblical texts. The paper was concluded on the presupposition that the pastor competence in the science of biblical interpretation will be more deepened through serious pastoral training and retraining in biblical language and literatures. The work also recommended that the study of biblical languages and literatures be made compulsory in all institutions of pastoral training.
