Abstract:This dissertation contends for the necessary inclusion of contemporary application in the expository sermon. Furthermore, it seeks to establish the nature of contemporary application that is faithful to the authorial intent of a specific biblical text as derived through a historical-grammatical and theological approach to interpretation. The impetus for this study is primarily the result of three major issues concerning application: (1) the debate over the inclusion of application in the expository sermon, (2) the difficulty in identifying contemporary application that reflects the original meaning of the historical biblical text, and (3) the deficiency of resources devoted to formulating accurate application. The opening chapter concludes by defining the critical terms 'application' and 'expository preaching' in order to establish the platform for effective dialogue throughout the remainder of the dissertation. In doing so, it introduces the concept of 'contextual-theological application' that the dissertation seeks to define and defend. The second chapter presents the "Argument for Application" by considering the relationship between hermeneutics and homiletical application. Primarily, this is accomplished by examining the fundamental issue of textual meaning as it relates to homiletics. This analysis includes a brief overview of the historical discussion regarding meaning and the foundational elements of the reader, the text, and the author. It contends for authorial intent as the final arbiter of meaning. This chapter also considers the various arguments regarding the affiliation between interpretation and application and the appropriateness of application's inclusion in the expository sermon. The unique nature of the Bible and issues of meaning specifically related to the distinct character of the biblical text are also included in the evaluation. The relationship between meaning and contemporary application is evaluated according to Hirsch's classic distinction of the terms 'meaning' and 'significance.' The nature of this relationship provides the foundation to argue for the necessity of allowing authorial intent to govern the contemporary application in conjunction with its determination of the historical meaning. This chapter concludes by discussing the implications of the interdependent relationship between meaning and contemporary application, including common mistakes in application and current perspectives on its nature. Chapter Three, "The Biblical Justification: The Witness of Scripture," investigates the biblical evidence for contextual-theological application by analyzing the hermeneutics of the biblical authors in the Old Testament and the New Testament. This chapter evaluates the concept of inner-biblical exegesis in each Testament with special consideration of contemporary scholarship in the Old Testament and the New Testament respectively. The chapter also examines the biblical evidence in each Testament. Specifically, the inner-biblical exegesis of the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings identifies the applicational pattern of the biblical authors in the Old Testament. Similarly, the inner-biblical exegesis of the Old Testament by Jesus and Paul establishes the New Testament model for application. Additionally, the chapter also considers the self-witness of several New Testament texts that further affirm the concept of contextual-theological application. The fourth chapter, "The Hermeneutical Justification: The Significance of Literary Genre," further establishes the hermeneutical foundation for application. This chapter analyzes the role of literary genre in homiletical application by: (1) establishing the need for genre analysis in determining textual-application; (2) evaluating four of the major biblical genres including Hebrew Narrative, Prophecy, Gospel, and Epistle and analyzing specific issues related to their contemporary application; and (3) identifying implications of genre analysis for the expositor. In identifying the necessity of genre analysis this chapter also demonstra es the current negligence of its consideration for application. Chapter Five, "The Theological Justification: The Role of the Holy Spirit," provides a theological argument for application by considering the person of the Holy Spirit and His role in applying biblical truth in the lives of the hearer. The work and responsibility of the Holy Spirit in application is analyzed through His relationship to each of the primary elements of the preaching event with regard to contemporary relevance. By identifying the nature of the Holy Spirit's association with the Scripture, the preacher, and the hearer, an overall assessment of His function in homiletics is established in order to identify implications for the field of preaching as it relates to textual application. Because some contend that application should be left entirely to the Holy Spirit, this chapter inherently serves as a response to their view. While demonstrating the validity of their arguments, it also considers aspects of the Spirit's ministry that their perspective minimizes or disregards. The final chapter, "Implications/Conclusion," assesses the practical implications of contextual-theological application for the contemporary expositor. This chapter evaluates current models of application and also offers some guiding principles for determining contextual-theological application. It proposes four major criteria that should be included in application and describes each. The suggested components include contextual, theological, grace-oriented, and practical criteria.
