The Bible is much more foreign than we often realize in that we are separated by time, language, geography, history and culture from the early hearers of the biblical message; equally foreign are present contexts in a very diverse global church.
This talk aims to find common ground between the "foreignness" of each context and to present a model of Bible study and theological perspective with exegetical and missiological implications with the aim of equipping the saints for humble and effective service in the Church universal.
