Event description

Description

Topic: "From the Shema to the Nicene Creed: The Role of Creeds in the Articulation of Christian Orthodoxy"

Many Protestants are suspicious of creeds from the early church, partly because we fear they may undermine the authority of Scripture alone, and partly because they do not seem to be consistent with our main emphasis, justification by faith. But in fact, creedal-like affirmations in the Bible itself gave the early church its pattern for the articulation of creeds. The ancient creeds - especially the Nicene Creed - served to articulate the continuity between Scripture and early orthodox Christianity. They also have more in common with the Reformation emphasis on justification by faith than we might have imagined.
