David DeSilva on “What makes a good Biblical Scholar or Theologian?”
Have the courage to go wherever the texts and the evidence lead you.
Theological commitments should be continually refreshed as we see more of the light of Scripture.
To do the reverse — reading Scripture as our theological commitments allow — is to betray the foundational theological commitment: Prima Scriptura.
~David DeSilva is Trustees’ Distinguished Professor of New Testament and Greek at Ashland Theological Seminary, and an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church.
