The Gospel of John plays a large role in the church’s understanding of the Trinity, but symptomatic of the increasing specialisation within scholarship is an unfortunate separation of exegesis from systematic theology. We are left with Biblical studies neglecting to take the next step from study of the Biblical text to further theological reflection and synthesis. Köstenberger and Swan’s hope to set an example of how the two can be rejoined in their work Father, Son and Spirit by providing a study that, “summarises and synthesises what John has to say about God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit” (p20).

Coming later this year from the New Studies in Biblical Theology (NSBT) series is Brian Rosner’s Paul and the Law. There is significant debate on how New Testament authors (particularly Paul) understood the place of the law in the life of the Christian, and Rosner’s contribution looks to present a reasonable way forward.
I got the chance to ask Dr. Graham A. Cole some questions about his upcoming book with IVP‘s New Studies in Biblical Theology (NSBT) series. It will be released in a few months. I already posted a little about this book here.
