AbstractYet another journal?Theological journal – of all kinds and formats – do not appear to be an endangered species in South Africa. Up to now the student of Biblical Studies gratefully me use of existing publications. He and his colleagues who reads theology are in fact both engaged in a study of the Bible and find themselves covering very much the same ground. One difference is that the student of Biblical Studies concentrates on the Old and New Testament and Biblical Theology (or Systematics). He is also usually not (or at least not yet) preparing himself to enter the ministry of a specific denomination. Normally he studies the subject as part of a humanities course under the auspices of the arts faculty, in a non-denominational setting. He will enter the teaching profession or any number of “secular” careers. All these factors have an influence on the way Biblical Studies is presented as a university subject. The field has to be covered in 3 instead of the 6 or 7 years allocated for theological training. This calls for a more concentrated and intensive approach. Knowledge of Biblical languages is usually required only on post-graduate level.
