Πρόσφατη Ερμηνεία της Βίβλου στην Ανατολική Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία /
Recent Interpretation of the Bible in the Eastern Orthodox Church

Interpretation of the Bible in the Eastern Orthodox Church has until recently been largely determined by the dogmatic imperatives of the ecclesial institution. In the last several decades, however, a variety of Orthodox scholars have launched significant investigations of the Bible and particularly of the New Testament using methododolgy modeled on that of the Western scholarly academy, while in some cases continuing to search for a specifically ‘Orthodox’ approach to biblical study. This article concentrates primarily on developments in New Testament interpretation among Orthodox biblical scholars in North America over the last three decades, focusing on the contributions of a generation of researchers responsible for the first significant expansion of Orthodox biblical study into modern academia and looking forward to newer voices and research directions in the Orthodox world.
