I’ll do a lot of these. consider them long Tweets.
Jesus is the Logos, meaning he IS “ology”. The study of Theology must start with Christology, was He is the God we are studying. When we study the Word (the Bible) we are studying a man. The Word is living and active because He is living and active. Scripture is supreme because He is supreme. Scripture is absolute because He is absolute.
Our interpretive lens when looking at scripture is the in dwelling Holy Spirit testifying of Jesus- The Word. We can asks questions about the Word, theorize, and make assumptions, and even make idealogical constructs. But at the end of the day all such thoughts fall into the category of speculation. Only by revelation given us by the Holy Spirit testifying of the Logos can we really know what we know. Therefore our epistemological center comes from another realm, another age, another place.
Faith is the evidence of things unseen and unknown. Revelation is the evidence that faith can see.
