Theological Interpretation of Scripture

Theological Interpretation of Scripture (TIS) is a discipline that is growing in popularity and usefulness. This popularity has spawned many proposals for what TIS is and how it should be conducted. Evident within these proposals are three general approaches to TIS: the biblical, the theological, and the social. While complementary, these approaches to TIS differ. Observing these differences allows for mutual appreciation between the three approaches. It also provides an opportunity to clarify further what theologians are doing when they undertake a theological theological interpretation of Scripture.

About Laidlaw’s Research Seminars

As a part of Laidlaw’s commitment to relevant, gospel-centred, innovative research, the School of Theology faculty gather on the second Wednesday of each month for a research seminar. The seminars are built around a simple format – one academic presentation followed by critical interaction. The seminar is videoconferenced across Laidlaw’s three campuses. Anyone is welcome to join us – this could include postgrad students, researchers from other institutions, or any others looking to hear and interact with cutting edge theological and biblical research.  

If you are unable to come to a Laidlaw campus and would like to join in from your device (anywhere, any place), please email Kerry Gordon E. [email protected]
