Presentation Abstract

One of the main features of the contemporary Theological Interpretation of Scripture movement is the idea that Christian Doctrine plays a crucial role in biblical interpretation. In this context, the role of doctrine in theological interpretation is particularly defined in terms of taking into account the rule faith in the reading of the biblical text. However, a brief comparison between some scholars, such as Kevin Vanhoozer, Daniel Treier, and Robert Wall, shows that there are significant disagreements with regard to the concept of the rule of faith and its role in the interpretation of Scripture. In this sense, I attempt to clarify these disagreements and briefly analyze the hermeneutical use of the rule of faith in biblical interpretation. I contend that the hermeneutical role of the rule of faith in contemporary Theological Interpretation of Scripture is especially derived from notions about the nature and function of Scripture.
