What is Scripture?
Missio Dei & Dr. Blaski Discuss The Master of Sacred Scripture Program @ Holy Apostles College
Take a moment and watch this great interview by Jonathon Fessenden discussing with Dr. Blaski the new program at Holy Apostles College & Seminary. Holy Apostles is dear to Missio Dei, Holy Apostles is where Jonathon and Phillip became friends and is more or less the birthplace of the idea for Missio Dei!
In the video, Dr. Blaski asks, “What is Scripture?” Please take a moment and reflect on that question with yourselves as you watch the video.
My answer to Dr. Blaski’s question is Scripture is revelation. It is one medium of God pulling back the veil into the ratio—the mind of God—The Logos. And what do we discover? We discover that God reveals to humanity in the most profoundly human way—story. Scripture; the word of God, the story of the people of Israel which is profoundly human is incarnational—the story of salvation.
Holy Apostles is where I studied Sacred Scripture. The program which I matriculated through was Master of Arts in Theology with a focus on Sacred Scripture. My experience was similar to the program mention in the video because I took an elective course on the Patristics for the purpose of being more familiar with the early fathers view of Sacred Scripture. Naturally, every program will be a survey in someway, it is up to the person to continue his or her journey as a perpetual student constantly learning and studying throughout one’s life.
Take a moment to watch the video & consider starting one of Holy Apostles’ great programs.
