A common approach for Christian educators when seeking to integrate faith and learning is to seek “biblical solutions” to problems facing and created by corporations. Lynn and Wallace (2001) offer a framework for reversing this sequence. They advocate ten hermeneutic principles conveniently grouped into three sequential steps. Beginnings—The Exegetical Process Broadening the Focus— Theological Reflection Applying the Text—Hermeneutic Implications. This paper explores the scriptural concept of land tenancy as described in Leviticus 25. By applying the tri-fold model of Lynn and Wallace, we are able to gain insights and raise questions. Both are useful in accomplishing the educational process.
