Steve Holmes on the Place of Theology in Exegesis

Stephen R. Holmes has written a helpful response to Kevin DeYoung’s post (here) on the definition and relationship between systematic theology and exegesis. Holmes notes that “people I respect have praised the post; I find DeYoung’s account of the relation of Scripture to theology inadequate, however.” At the end he admits: “I don’t know how much of this DeYoung would disagree with – but I hear the claim that the task of theology is merely the collation of Scripture rather too often these days; if it is not one he would make, I have unfairly made him the occasion for this post, and I apologise.” Either way, Holmes’ post helpfully moves the discussion forward in humble and insightful ways and is worth a read.
