Center for Scriptural Exegesis, Philosophy, and Doctrine
Christian faith is centered on Jesus Christ, whom the Church contemplates through the lens of Scripture: first the Scriptures of Israel, and later also the New Testament. But what is Scripture, and how should scriptural exegesis be performed? Does Scripture make philosophical claims and/or require philosophy for its doctrinal interpretation? What is the significance of the liturgical and creedal context in which Scripture is proclaimed? Such questions go to the heart of Christian communion with God and neighbor, and they should be asked also with appreciation for what other religious communities have to teach about the relationship between exegesis, philosophy, and doctrine. The Center for Scriptural Exegesis, Philosophy, and Doctrine offers a prominent forum for engaging such questions as part of the enterprise of faith seeking understanding.
