Description

Apocalypse and Mystagogy - Scott Hahn

There is, in Christianity, an intimate relationship between sacred Scripture and the sacred liturgy. In this paper we will examine the liturgical content of the Bible and the liturgical context in which the scriptures were produced, canonized, and proclaimed. What the pattern of the tabernacle was for Moses, the NT books of - Hebrews and Revelation are for the Church. In worship, God's people step into the stream of salvation history. Apocalypse unveils the fulfillment of the divine plan in history. Mystagogy reveals the divine presence and power in liturgy.

Hagar and Sarah in the (Exegetical) Afterlife: How the Practice of Theological Interpretation Complicates Theory - John Thompson

Although the history of the Bible's exegesis and reception is often regarded as a vital resource for the theological interpretation of Scripture, recovering and understanding this historical resource can be a monumental and ambiguous undertaking. Indeed, biblical texts are themselves often ambiguous in their canonical settings and contested in their later use. The poignant story of Hagar's rejection by Sarah is precisely such a text: radically reimagined by Paul in Galatians 4, Sarah and Hagar became archetypes for allegorical exegesis as well as for dramatically diverse spiritual readings. Their story thus offers a glimpse not only of various approaches to spiritual exegesis but also of the evolution of these varied "practical" readings of Scripture over the course of many centuries - and consequently raises provocative questions for any theory of theological interpretation.
