SADS focuses on the intersection of Scripture and Doctrine. Historically doctrine has developed as the church needed to give an account of what it believed and to protect itself from heresy.
SADS explores the move from Scripture to the formulation of doctrine, and how doctrine and tradition illuminate our reading of the Bible. Insofar as doctrine captures the message of the Bible it also provides an indispensable lens through which to read Scripture and informs our faithful witness to Christ in His world.
In 2016 and 2017 SADS focused on Divine action in Hebrews, particularly in relation to the ongoing priesthood of Jesus. In 2018 the seminar launched a two-year theme addressing the relationship between Scripture and Doctrine via reflections on theological anthropology. In an effort to avoid discussing the Scripture-Doctrine relationship in the abstract, this two-year focus on theological anthropology will serve both to illustrate the relationship between Scripture and Doctrine, and offer constructive and contemporary proposals for theological anthropology.
