The theme for the Tyndale Fellowship New Testament Study Group in 2022 is 'Ethics and Moral Transformation in the New Testament'.
The Letter of James charges us to be doers of the perfect law of Scripture and not hearers only. Like all New Testament texts, James desires not merely to inform his readers but to see them transformed by God’s power at work through the gospel. What does it mean to fulfil the law of Scripture? How should Christians live? What does the New Testament have to say to wider structural and societal conversations about ethics? How do we move from these ancient texts to moral questions today?
