Hermeneutics

HERMENEUTICS

—n. (used with a sing. v.)
1. the science of interpretation, esp. of the Scriptures.
2. the branch of theology that deals with the principles of Biblical exegesis.



Hermeneutics did not serve:
The note - “Goodbye, cruel world” - was just as laconic.

I took a hermeneutics class in college believe it or not.

I thought today's word would be gloaming! Mind you, I like this too. :)

I know this one! But only because a friend is getting her Ph.D. in it. Love the image that goes with this.
