These rules are general. Their point of interest is…
- Interpretation of Scripture
- Establishment of halakhah
By applying these rules to our Hermeneutic process we can better understand the Tanakh and the Nazarean Codicil.
Sevarah – logical deduction, drash deductive hermeneutic.
Chazakah – status quo
Miggo – “because” – a person is presumed to be telling the truth, had he wished to lie he would have made a better plea.
Rov – Majority rule per se
- The majority before us (ruba d’ita kaman) definite number observable.
- The majority that is NOT before us (ruba d’leta kaman) indefinite number, assumption based on observations.
Kavuna – fixed
Drash – deduced halakhah
Darshanim – “interpreters of Scripture”
