There are two accepted terms for interpretation of Scripture:
- exegesis: a form of interpretation which attempts to allow the text to guide interpretation
- eisegesis: a form of interpretation which reads an agenda/doctrine into the text from an external source
I felt that there was a need for another word denoting a type of interpretation I observed in many forms through the years.
noun. a flawed method of interpreting Scripture in a near-sighted, limited way. The text is seen without consideration of greater context, supranarrative, and interpretational heritage.
