Biblical Theology

At IBR 2019, the Biblical Theology group continued a multi-year project begun in 2017, focusing on examples of biblical theological method and classification. Using the taxonomy of types of Biblical Theology offered in Understanding Biblical Theology (Zondervan, 2012), papers focused on a worked example of their particular types of Biblical Theology, while reflecting upon the methodological perspectives within their own perspective on Biblical Theology.

In 2020 the Biblical Theology section will host a session on the relationship between biblical theology and the biblical canon. The section will offer four invited papers that will reflect on the ways that the concept of canon shapes the methodological and theological perspectives of biblical theology.
