The Doctrine of Scripture

For many Christians, the doctrine of Scripture takes priority over the actual content of Scripture.  One consequence of this approach is to minimize the life and teaching of Jesus as the core of our theology.

In my essay, “The Doctrine of Scripture,” I reflect on the significance of making God’s revelation of Godself in Jesus central for our understanding of the Bible.  I suggest that seeing Jesus as central to the Bible then provides an angle of perception for discerning other expressions of God’s self-revelation.

This essay is the sixth in a series that examines core Christian doctrines, consistently asking what shape they should take if they are articulated in light of Jesus.
