COETZEE, Carel y SMITH, Stephan. Skrifkritiese opstandingsperspektiewe - beoordeel vanuit die gereformeerde teologie. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp.1-11. ISSN 2305-0853. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/IDS.v49i1.2011.
This article investigates the nature and extent of scripture-critical views of the resurrection in the context of South African theology. Special attention is given to the consequences that a scripture-critical view of the resurrection has on the core doctrines of reformed theology. Further consequences also affect the day-to-day faith of believers and the mission and effectiveness of the church. In order to conclude this investigation a number of scripture-critical views of the resurrection are critically investigated and evaluated from the perspective of the paradigm of reformed Dogmatics. Research has proven that scripture-critical scholars of theology displace or undervalue the impactful meaning of Christ's resurrection. Scripture-critical views of the resurrection have numerous negative consequences for the traditional doctrines of reformed theology. This article has determined that a scripture-critical view of the resurrection is not reconcilable with the traditional reformed doctrine of Christology.
