“Faithfulness to Scripture” in the worship service? Comments on a core confession
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 charac- teristics of Scripture in liturgy, including factors such as the fo- cus (theological framework), form (genre) and function (inten- tion) of Biblical 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.
