Which Comes First, Theology or Exegesis?
We are all idealists are we not? Have you ever heard someone say, "Well I can't find such and such a doctrine in MY bible". The assumption is that all we need is our Bibles. The assumption is that we are not bringing assumptions to the text of Scripture. Darryl G. Hart has a peach of a post on the relationship between theology and exegesis. If you haven't bookmarked his blog, Old Life Theological Society, you should. Not many guys write with such penetrating analysis on evangelicalism. He's also irreverent and hilarious. Check it out.
