A lecture preparation thought

While preparing for a lecture on biblical theology, I had to ask myself whether the future of the 'biblical theology' project (Hahn and co.), despite the renewed stream of both German and English language publications, should ultimately be subsumed, whilst carefully swerving around 'reception history', into a wider theologically ordered exegesis (Fowl, Webster etc.).

Hi Chris,

could you explain what you mean by "wider theologically ordered exegesis"? For Childs, at least, "Biblical Theology" is a kind of auxiliary discipline that aids the task of theological exegesis, not something to be set up as an alternative to theological exegesis.

Hey Phil,
Yea, Childs is ahead of the game there, eh.

By the "wider" bit, I mean to refer mainly to John Webster's various proposals (though also Fowls)
