In terms of Theological discipline my training was mostly in what is called “Biblical Theology”. Bib Theo (for short) pays attention to the unfolding of redemption historically which is different from Systematic Theology which tends to collate and collect ideas into headings. Not to say I don’t do Systematics, for I do.
Its been about four years now that I started to think,t in terms of Systematics, the heading (or loci) of “Ecclesiology” should really not be a heading on its own but properly belongs under “Christology”, as a sub heading. I am now starting to think the doctrine of the Incarnation is as much a part of the Doctrine of God ( as opposed to say “Christology”) and the sub heading of “Trinity” as anything else.
More on this latter…..
