In Christology and Scripture major biblical students and theologians discover the relation of theological suggestion to the examining of Scripture. the point of interest is on 3 inter-related concerns. the 1st is how theologians adequately learn Scripture round Christ, and what contribution, if any, historical-criticism makes to this endeavour. the second one is that of the individual and paintings of Christ on the subject of Scripture. In interplay with particular texts, members have interaction with the comparable questions of who Christ is and the way his advantages are communicated. This leads directly to the ultimate factor of responsiveness to our present context of interpreting, and members contemplate how Christological versions relate to modern cultural and political matters.

2 And the unfolding narrative, in which the episode immediately preceding Caesarea Philippi emphasizes the dullness of the disciples' understanding (Mt. 5-12), offers no account of any special moment in which dullness is replaced by insight - other than the moment of dialogue between Jesus and his disciples at Caesarea Philippi, in which, for example, the voice that speaks at Jesus' baptism and transfiguration plays no role. On the other hand, if Peter's insight is 'supernatural', this may be essentially because he is being extended in a good and right way beyond his predictable natural capacities.
