Abstract

2018/05/02. Building on last year’s Walls Lecture, which told the story of the Bible’s past at SPU, Professors Daniel Castelo and Rob Wall propose a rethinking of the Bible’s nature and practice as the church’s book for the 21st century. Rather than comparing the Bible with the twofold nature of Christ — i.e., the Bible is a human production of God’s divine word — a different analogy is proposed. The Bible’s nature and its Spirit-inspired witness are like the four “marks” of the church: The Bible also is “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.” Our pivotal affirmation: The Bible is the church’s book, formed by the church in order to reform and form the church after Christ’s likeness. Hear personal reflections on how this rubric may help shape SPU’s Wesleyan identity and the School of Theology’s brand of theological education.
