Christadelphian eJournal of Biblical Interpretation
The Christadelphian eJournal covers academic biblical studies from a Christadelphian perspective. There is a need for such a journal both to introduce and engage with biblical studies as practised today. The EJournal and its supplements are circulated by e-mail attachment and stored online on this website. The inclusion of papers and dissertations in this publication is the decision of the compiler/editor(s), but after publication, they are subject to peer review. This will allow authors to respond to comments and change their essays in the light of remarks. Online publication allows them to be changed after publication, and this is noted in a change history in the journal issue or supplement.
The eJournal is intended to be a forum for material written in an analytical style. It is a vehicle for exegetical and expositional articles, a distinction that we draw in the following way: exegesis is concerned with laying bare the various layers of meaning in a text without regard to the application of this information to the ecclesia. Expositional articles are exegetical and in addition show how the textual material is relevant to the ecclesia. Devotional and homiletical material lies outside the remit of the eJournal, as do articles relating prophecy to current affairs, but doctrinal and apologetic material is welcomed provided it has the necessary exegetical approach.
Finally, the policy of the journal is to publish material that will be of value over time. They should therefore be presentations of ideas rather than controversies of the moment. In summary, the eJournal seeks to fulfil the following objectives:
- Offer analytical and expositional articles on biblical texts
- Engage academic biblical studies that originate in other Christian
- Defend the Biblical principles summarised in the common
Christadelphian statement of faith
- Subject the published articles to peer review and amendment
In 2018 the eJournal transitioned from a quarterly publication to a bi-annual publication and then ceased publication in 2019. It was replaced in 2019 with a bi-annual “Supplement Series” of longer papers with each issue being devoted to a theme.
The eJournal is also published in printed Annual editions and can be ordered online.
