Start[edit]

I guess I'm the first one to discuss this. Well, I can greatly expand this by going over a history of Biblical Theology starting with the early "Church Fathers" of the Christian Church and with early Hebrew talmuds on the Jewish Tanakh. Then I can bring it up to the history of now with current Biblical Theologians and exegisis with a counter-view of Biblical Fundamentalism, unless one finds that Biblical Fundamentalism doesn't belong in an article on Biblical Theology since monce Biblical Fundamentalism doesn't revolve around the exegisis on scripture but rather the complete subjecation to a fundamentalist view of the "infallble" Bible.

I'm not sure that I get what you're talking about with regard to Biblical Fundamentalism, but feel free to expand the article. --Flex 14:09, 13 May 2005 (UTC)

Bahá'í Progressive Revelation[edit]

I removed the reference to Bahá'í progressive revelation because the paragraph stated that it is not close to brick layering, but in fact it is. Bahá'ís believe that the spiritual laws in progressive revelation do build up from revelation to revelation. It's the social laws that are replaced in each revelation to help humanity advance. See Progressive revelation for more information.

Additions to definition[edit]

I think expanding this would prove really interesting to watch. In your definition you might consider adding two extra points. The first being the germinal nature of the progression and not the qualitative. In talking to some I've discovered that this is a major confusion. The second is that Biblical Theology does not place itself above any of the other theological schools. I could go into this further but I trust you understand the argument. --Frosty2433

Why don't you take a shot at it. That's what the Wikipedia is all about. --Flex 17:12, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
