Seitz on Canon and Creed

I am teaching over the next couple of weeks on the Apostle’s Creed. In an essay I read these helpful statements by Chris Seitz on canon and creed.

Creed is more than putting out brushfires. It is letting Scripture come to its natural, two-testament expression. Just as the Old Testament leaves its father and mother and cleaves to the New, so the Scriptures cleave to the creed, and the creed to them, and they become one flesh. (“Our Help Is in the Name of the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth”, p. 20)

  1. Nijay,
    I met your father this morning and when I told him I was an Asbury Seminary graduate he began to tell me with fatherly pride about his son. He showed me some of your work. I look forward to reading some of your work, and to getting to know your father on more than a Dr/patient relationship. You may know that Asbury has an Indian connection through E Stanley Jones, a missionary of another generation.
