Publication (1)
Raw Data
This bibliography is intended as an exercise in the early stage of my preliminary research on the intersection between Pentecostal theology and biblical interpretation. It’s a working draft and it should grow not only in length, but also in focus and quality. Before proceeding you should know this: 1. I’m open to any suggestions regarding content,...


Questions (3)
How do theologians of any religion work with their sacred texts? I'm looking for a convenient survey of approaches for graduate students, but more specific studies in religious philosophical hermeneutics and systematic theological approaches to texts are also very welcome.
I've been entertaining myself these days with some popular eschatological theories purporting to find concurrence between astronomical events and Jewish or Christian holidays. An example of such a theorist is John Hagee, but there are more.
In my opinion, these theories are usually not difficult to refute even on their own grounds.
However, I find it difficult to find good publications dealing with these excesses. Can you think of a treatise which pays attention to such theories from theological or historical standpoint?
I'm especially interested in publications on such theories which make explicit use of the Jewish calendar.
The recent controversy over eternal functional subordination of the Son basically stems from the fact that some complementarians (e.g. Ware, Grudem) think that there is a parallel between the Holy Trinity and marriage.
It seems to me that there is no firm biblical, historical, or theological warrant for such a surmise. Or is there? Do you know of some apology of socio-Trinitarian principle?
