Tyndale Fellowship Spotlight: Christian Doctrine Study Group
5th April 2022
The Tyndale Fellowship Conference 2022 will take place this summer, from Wednesday 22 June to Friday 24 June. This annual conference brings together six discipline-based study groups over three days for lectures and discussion on the latest scholarly developments.
This year, the Christian Doctrine Study Group will focus on recent developments in Christology, asking the question, 'Who is Jesus Christ today?'.
Hear from co-chair Dr Jason Sexton about what he's most looking forward to.
What are you looking forward to about the conference?
'We haven't been together in person for two years, and so this will be a wonderfully rich time to relax with one another (from all the groups) and enjoy the good company and conversations that will flow from the cutting edge research the Tyndale Fellowship produces.
We have found the close-range intimate research and conversations (and publications) that flow from them at the conference and beyond to be some of the most meaningful theological discussions we have ever had among like-minded evangelical scholars, and so we are especially eager to be back in person this summer.'
What are you looking forward to about the Christian Doctrine study group’s programme?
'We have chosen to focus our attention on Christology, and specifically the age-old question, Who is Jesus Christ Today? We expect this to be a multi-year conversation that will lead to a helpful volume on the subject that incorporates perspectives both historical and contemporary, incorporating new understandings from new research across the disciplines with import for Christian doctrine, and also with insight from global, local, social, and political concerns represented.
Dr. Joanna Leidenhag will deliver this year's Tyndale Lecture for the Christian Doctrine study group. She is quickly becoming one of the most important young voices in Christian theology in the English-speaking world, working largely at the intersection of theology and science, and with import for the range of systematic theology, but especially theological anthropology and Christology.'
