What does the fulfillment theme in Matthew say about the canon as a whole? Why does John use of Old Testament imagery to capture who Jesus is and what he came to accomplish? What does eschatology have to do with the relationship between Israel’s Scripture and the coming of Christ? Does Christ’s covenant obedience to the scriptures say something about the scriptures? How does Jesus’s Trinitarian origin further substantiate the canon’s credibility? Are evangelicals dogmatically malnourished? How might a dogmatic perspective help us see the canon as Jesus himself did?
