Exegesis (/ˌɛksəˈdʒiːsɪs/; from the Greek ἐξήγησις from ἐξηγεῖσθαι, "to lead out") is an explanation of a text, particularly a religious text. Traditionally the term was used primarily for work with the Bible; however, in modern usage "biblical exegesis" is used for greater specificity to distinguish it from any other broader critical text explanation. Exegesis is the expository investigation into the history and origins of the text, but may include the study of the historical and cultural backgrounds for the author, the text, and the original audience.

Church of Christ gospel sermon:  Dead Sea Scrolls in Pictures  In 1947 a young boy found a group of scrolls in a cave that has proved the faithfulness of the transmission of the Old Testament (OT) Scriptures.  Until their discovery, the oldest Old Testament was the Alpo Leningrad codex from about 1,100AD, but this discovery has pushed our oldest copies of the Bible back to the 3rd century before Christ.  Every book of the O.T. except Esther was found in 11 caves along with a library of sectarian writings.  We will see 116 pictures and examine some of the unique finds such as: 4QMMT which was hidden by Catholic scholars for over 50 years because of its use of certain Pauline terms.   We will examine:  the Messiah of Heaven & Earth,  4Q521  which has exact verbal parallels to Ma. 11:4-5  & Luke 7:22-23;  the Son of God Text,  4Q246 which has exact verbal parallels to Luke 1:32 & 35; and the Pierced Messiah Text, 4Q285 which expounds on Isaiah 10:34 -11:1ff, which we in the Churches of Christ have always recognized as Messianic scripture, adding the element of a suffering, atoning Messiah to Isaiah 11.    Invitation Song - Amazing Grace;  Invitation: 1 Baptism & 9 for prayers.  Closing Song - Standing On The Promises

The Science of interpretation is called Hermeneutics and this week we will examine an amazing Prophecy. Ezekiel had a vision in 574 BC and saw the East Gate of the Temple Shut.  Ezekiel 44:1-3 Amazing prophecy there was no East Gate it had been destroyed 12 years earlier by Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon in 586 when he destroyed Jerusalem. Therefore for it to come true Jerusalem and the Walls & Gates must be re-built and the Messiah the Lord Himself has to come and enter by this gate before it's shut Ezekiel 43:1-7 Cf: Revelations 1:15, Mark 11:1ff.
