Spiritual exegesis of Hebrew Bible texts fuels the divide between two ecclesial instantiations of Anglicanism in the United States. This exegesis, engaged in strikingly similar manners by both organizations, remains bereft of its traditional controls that, if followed, would allow it to more productively shape ecclesial life. A look at four of these controls sets the stage for a detailed analysis of representative texts, which demonstrates how leaders in both organizations fail to properly hold their interpretive strategies accountable to the larger Christian narrative. In conclusion, brief consideration is given to how adherence to these controls could reshape the conflicts at hand by the exegesis of a Hebrew Bible text of liturgical significance to Anglicanism.
