Biblical Theology


The Biblical Theology program unit aims to explore and clarify what it means to understand and embrace the interpretive perspective of the biblical authors. We are interested in whole Bible treatments of themes, analysis of inner-biblical interpretation, and canonically sensitive treatments of particular passages, literary structures, and typological developments. We further welcome treatments of the Bible's story, how truths and doctrines are derived from it, the symbols used to summarize and interpret it, and the ethics, culture, and worship to which it gives rise. The history of the consideration of these topics, the state of the current discussion, and proposals for the future of such inquiry likewise concern us.
