CILLIERS, J.H.. "Faithfulness to Scripture" in the worship service? Comments on a core confession. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.3, pp.431-448. ISSN 2305-0853.
In this article the fundamental question is posed as to what "faithfulness to Scripture" in the worship service entails. After giving attention to some possible answers, a plea is made for an enriched understanding and usage of the unique characteristics of Scripture in liturgy, including factors such as the focus (theological framework), form (genre) and function (intention) ofBiblical texts. In closing, the article addresses the question whether a constructive interaction exists between our exegesis and liturgy, and what the implications thereof could be for our worship services.
