OLD & NEW TESTAMENT

The focus of Old and New Testament is on the rigorous responsible and accountable theological interpretation of the Bible.

Rigorous theological exegesis of the Bible must always be responsible to the rest of the academic scholarly community; as well as accountable to the communities of faith (in Africa and abroad) within which the interpretation of Scripture takes place. Therefore the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible must be interpreted in close relationship with the world of the Biblical authors (then) and readers (now).

The theological interpretation entails the faith unlocking understanding of the Bible in the context of the exegete, that can be worked out in love to achieve justice for all and to glorify God.

 

The Department Old and New Testament is also home to this International Journal of Bible, Religion and Theology in Southern Africa.
