Kevin Vanhoozer on Sola Scriptura

There’s a great 20:22 minute video, available from here, of Kevin Vanhoozer on sola Scriptura – reflecting on the need to do it as well as confess it.

Taking his cue from Eugene Peterson, he talks about reading the Bible formatively: to practise sola Scriptura is to ‘eat, pray and love’ these words. Moreover, Scripture is not an end in itself, but a means to Jesus Christ. The written word serves the living word.

Riffing on Jesus as ‘the way, the truth, and the life’, he explores three ways of ‘eating’ the book – Scripture is what lights our way, orients us to the truth, and indwells us with the life of Jesus Christ.
