ST 703: Theological Interpretation of Scripture: Five Things That Theologians Wish Biblical Scholars Knew

Hans Boersma, PhD

Course Description

With theological interpretation of Scripture moving into the center of attention, how should we view the relationship between biblical studies and dogmatic theology?  

This course arises from an ongoing twofold book project that deals with this question.  In the one book, a biblical scholar will deal with five things he wishes theologians knew.  In the other, I will discuss five things I wish biblical scholars knew.  This course is based on the book that I am the process of writing.  The course will focus on the five areas of Christology, metaphysics, providence, ecclesiology, and eschatology, relating each of these areas to biblical interpretation.
