2016 Niblett Memorial Lecture: Reading Scripture Today

  • Course Dates: Sat 15 October 2016, 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm

“The Word of God is living and active” (Heb.4.12): Can we hear scripture afresh today?

Modern interpretation of the Bible focussed on the past – the original meaning was the true meaning. Postmodernism has discovered that texts may have future meanings unforeseen by the author.

This lecture will explore what this means for reading scripture today, and will focus the issues by looking closely at how the Jewish scriptures were read by the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews, and how the Epistle itself was read by those who first regarded it as scripture.

Prof Young’s book, God’s Presence: A Contemporary Recapitulation of Early Christianity, was shortlisted for the Michael Ramsay prize
