Biblical Genre and Relational Truths

Featuring:

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”).

BioLogos has built an impressive and still-growing network of small-“o” orthodox Christians from the sciences, arts & humanities, theology, biblical studies, and pastoral ministry. What unites us is a shared passion for persuading all faithful Christians to see the consensus results of the sciences not as part of some rival worldview but as a divinely-blessed means to deepen our understanding of God’s creation.
