Jaroslav Pelikan initiates this forty-volume statement sequence together with his paintings on Acts. This remark, like every one within the sequence, is designed to serve the church--through reduction in preaching, instructing, research teams, and so forth--and display the ongoing highbrow and functional viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
Pastors and leaders of the classical church--such as Augustine, Calvin, Luther, and Wesley--interpreted the Bible theologically, believing Scripture as a complete witnessed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. smooth interpreters of the Bible puzzled this premise. yet in fresh a long time, a serious mass of theologians and biblical students has started to reassert the concern of a theological analyzing of Scripture.
