Investigating Sacramental Theology
Dr. Andrew Johnson Invited to Prestigious Fellowship in Jerusalem
In February, Dr. Andrew Johnson, Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies will move to Jerusalem for a semester to study as a research fellow for the Institute for Advanced Studies at the Shalem Center in Jerusalem.
While in Jerusalem, Dr. Johnson will study sacramental epistemology, an exploration of how God uses the embodied actions of sacraments to impart knowledge us.
The Institute for Advanced Studies is an autonomous research institute at the Shalem Center whose purpose is the advancement of innovative academic studies in a number of disciplines, including history and theory of Zionism, philosophy of education, human nature studies, and rabbinic literature.
“This research will eventually culminate in a larger work on the purpose of sacraments in the church throughout her history,” Dr. Johnson said, “not merely as rites to be performed, but as God's way of teaching His people through their embodied actions.”
The work, titled Biblical Knowing: A Scriptural Epistemology of Error, lays the groundwork for looking at the Scriptures as epistemologically robust texts, where theories of knowing are explored throughout. It is slated for release in the spring.
During Dr. Johnson’s leave, two adjunct professors will teach his courses at King's.
