Theology & Translation

To talk about Christianity is to engage with philosophy. At the heart of these conversations are expansive and complex relationships. To see and seek to understand these relationships is the core aim of Theology. How do we relate to God? To one another? To creation? To ourselves? As Christians, we read the Bible to help guide our understanding. These biblical texts are sustained and translated for us through interpretive lenses of scholars. Translation is always interpretation and theological.
