Biblical theology is not just about reading the Bible rightly, though it begins there. It serves to guard and guide the local church. It maintains the right message, defines the task of the messenger, identifies imposters, tells us what we do when we gather, and sets the trajectory of our mission. It answers the question, Who are we, as the church in the world?
 
The newest 9Marks journal explores the role of biblical theology in the life of the church. Biblical theology is not simply “theology that is biblical”, it is a theological discipline. For a good introduction to biblical theology, see David Schrock’s blog post Biblical Theology for the Non-theologian.
