The Biblical Theology Study Group of Tyndale Fellowship exists to promote evangelical scholarship in the field of Biblical Theology.


Tyndale Fellowship Study Groups Conference 2023

Wednesday 5 - Friday 7 July 2023


The 2023 Tyndale Fellowship Biblical Theology Study Group will be investigating the theme of “Wilderness in Biblical Theology.” The theme was suggested by Dr Brian Rosner, principal of Ridley College in Australia, and he will be co-chairing the study group.

Compared with other biblical-theological motifs, such as exile, wilderness is a relatively neglected topic and holds considerable promise.  We are interested in discerning the purpose and function of a wilderness experience in the Bible, its place in salvation history, and the ways in which the wilderness motif shapes the Christian life. Since we hope to produce a volume of essays arising from the conference, we have invited the following contributions. Some, but not all, of these papers will be presented at the conference.
