A G van Aarde as theologian (1979-)
This article is an attempt to give a brief overview of the different theological points of departure of Van Aarde’s theological model, which has been lectured in the Department of New Testament Studies (Sec A) at the University of Pretoria since 1984. The ways in which this theological model are advocated are traced through his lectures, and his many scientific publications are also taken into consideration. From his theological model it is clear that, for Van Aarde, there is an indissoluble relationship between epistemology, methodology and teleology. In this connection, attention is given to the different epistemological, theological and hermeneutical presuppositions of his theological model. The conclusion is made that his theological model succeeds in being relevant and committed to reality with reference to the church in today’s mondial culture.
