Scripture and Hermeneutics Seminar
1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
11/19/2022
Room TBD 
When asked about how a student could excel in biblical exegesis, Brevard Childs answered, “If you want to do better exegesis, become a deeper person.” This raises the question, how does one become a deeper person such that it enhances one’s interpretation of the Bible? The SAHS is embarking on a multi-year project on spiritual formation and biblical interpretation. This project will consider (among other things) two main questions: (1) What is the role of spiritual formation in biblical interpretation? (2) How does Scripture as God’s instruction provide resources for thinking about and submitting to the process of spiritual formation? The chairs welcome feedback and those interested in this project are encouraged to get in touch. There will likely be associated virtual sessions on this topic throughout the year so please keep an eye on website for the Kirby Laing Centre (and/or subscribe to the KLC newsletter). For more information, please contact Dave Beldman (dbeldman@redeemer.ca) and AJ Culp (koinos1@yahoo.com).
