The relationship between doctrine and biblical exegesis is both complex and fraught with controversy. A hallmark of modern approaches to the Bible is the independence of the exegete from the disputes that have arisen in interconfessional contexts. [... A] major concern of the doctrine is to clarify how human and divine agency interrelate. I suggested that one way of testing its biblical character would be to ask whether the doctrine can help us exegete biblical texts where the question of divine and human agency is at issue.
