Transcript of TH5013 - Christian Youth Work: Aspects of Youth Ministry

Aspects of Youthwork:
Use of the Bible Task of hermeneutics (Marcionite heresy: reject OT) Biblicism: denial of the hermeneutical task Derive principles E.g. Joseph Fletcher's focus on neighbour love in Situation Ethics Marcion d. c. 160 (http://www.oxfordreference.com/views/ENTRY.html?entry=t95.e3643) Imitation of Christ E.g. Thomas a Kempis (c. 1380-1471), WWJD http://www.oxfordreference.com/views/ENTRY.html?entry=t95.e5775 Key themes E.g. Richard Hays:
New Creation
(The Moral Vision of the New Testament) principle of selection? Culture gap? Incoherence? Immorality? attention to narrative? Narrative ethics E.g. John Barton, Eithcs of the Old Testament E.g.

Ceremonial Thomas Aquinas, c. 1225-1274 http://www.oxfordreference.com/views/ENTRY.html?subview=Main&entry=t95.e5768 Modes of appeal to Scripture
(Richard Hays):
Symbolic world direct commands, e. g. prohibition of divorce (Mk 10:2-12 and par.) general frameworks governing moral decisions, e. g. double love commandment (Mk 12: 28-31 and par.) stories of model or reprehensible conduct, e. g. Good Samaritan as answer to “Who is my neighbour” (Lk 10:29-37) creates categories for interpreting reality, e. g. diagnosis of fallen human condition in Romans 1:19-32 How do we use the Bible in Youthwork?
