The Hermeneutical Bases of Dogmatic Theology
This chapter sorts through the details of Frei’s early project on biblical interpretation published as The Identity of Jesus Christ. It argues that an adequate understanding of that project requires a cautious grasp of its complex integration of hermeneutical, confessional, and ecclesial dimensions. Perhaps more significantly, a detailed grasp of the complex interaction of these dimensions in Identity is required for an accurate conception of the deep continuity running from that work through Frei’s thinking of the 1970s and 80s. This chapter concludes by situating Frei’s constructive project within the context of his own historicist rearticulation of the evolution of modern biblical hermeneutics that he set forth in The Eclipse of Biblical Narrative.
