Biblical Genre and Relational Truths

Featuring:

Theologian Chris Tilling, “The author of Genesis was not asking the questions that we are often asking in a biological sense.”

In this video, video, theologian Chris Tilling, New Testament Tutor for St. Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre in London, discusses biblical genre and the relational truth of Scripture. Tilling notes that when we read the biblical text, we bring our own presuppositions and assumptions to the text (what theologians call “eisegesis”).

“My participation in BioLogos gatherings has profoundly benefited my pastoral leadership. Not only was I informed and inspired intellectually, but I was encouraged by being in the community of other spiritual leaders who desire to deepen their understanding and worship of the Creator.  I have used BioLogos materials and insights gained from the dialogue they foster, both in the conversations I have in church and the resources we produce to promote Creation Care (e.g. http://vimeo.com/61121345 ) Yet the real benefit comes from normalizing the complementarity of science and scripture in our congregation.
