Discovering the meaning and intention behind the narratives, messages, and teachings of the Bible as a whole is what Biblical Theology is all about. This study delves deeply into the historical, cultural, and literary contexts of the Scriptures, offering a remarkable insight into the nature and will of God. For the Eastern Orthodox Church, Biblical Theology is an essential part of Christian theology, as it provides a foundation for interpreting the Holy Scriptures and recognizing their worth in the context of the Christian faith. As believers in Orthodox Christianity, they greatly emphasize interpreting the Bible in light of the broader Christian tradition and regarding it as the holy-inspired Word of God.
Biblical Theology is not just an academic exercise but a spiritual discipline that involves engaging with the Church, prayer, and deep contemplation. For Orthodox Christians, studying the Bible is a way to understand God’s plan for humanity better and figure out how to live accordingly. Orthodox Biblical Theology places great importance on recognizing the close joining between the Old and New Testaments and understanding the Bible. Interpreting the Bible within its cultural and historical context is crucial to uncovering its true meaning.
