Discernment in Christ. Theological hermeneutics, Scripture and Participation in Christ

Project Details


For Christians living in a pluralist and secular world, it is important to learn to discern in accordance with God’s discriminating love. This project reflects on Christian discernment and the formation of Christian discernment, starting from Jesus Christ and the participation of believers in Christ. The project moves from theological hermeneutics to the doctrine of Scripture. In modern times, questions concerning knowledge and certainty received a central place in the doctrine of Scripture and in theological hermeneutics. This resulted in a (quasi-)foundationalist narrative about Scripture and hermeneutics. The aim of this project is to develop an alternative narrative for theological hermeneutics in a 21st century post-Christian context, that is no longer modern.
