JANSE VAN RENSBURG, Hanré. Celebratory nostalgia: Reflecting on the work and impact of the Department of New Testament Studies at the University of Pretoria. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2017, vol.38, n.4, suppl.2, pp.69-98. ISSN 2074-7705.

In lieu of the centenary celebrations of the FT at the UP, this chapter takes a closer look at the Department of NTS. It does not only want to serve as a reflection on people and events that have led to the department's present. Making use of introspective examination focused on the Department's current position, task and impact, the chapter aspires to allow for the generation and evaluation of mental representations of possible futures. It thus anticipates exploring the history, work and impact of the Department of NTS at the UP, briefly by focusing on the variety of methods used by current members of the Department in their various research projects as well as the impact that these projects have and can continue to have. In doing so, the chapter demonstrates that the Department embraces a methodology which holds the diachronic and synchronous approaches in dialogue, thus pursuing a holistic approach. Through this continual pursuit of a holistic approach, the Department of NTS ensures a focus on the distinctive contribution that the NT offers - a better understanding of the dialectic between theological conceptualisations and historical reality.
