Aquinas as Evangelical Historical-Critical Biblical Commentator: Hebrews 6:1-12

At the Ave Maria University conference on “Aquinas the Biblical Theologian,” I presented a paper entitled, “Aquinas as Evangelical Historical-Critical Biblical Commentator: Hebrews 6:1-12.”

Between Roman Catholic and evangelical Protestant traditions, cross-denominational academic and homiletic opportunities exist within categories of “exegetical” or “expository” Biblical theology. For evangelicals, Scripture is often examined with eclectic historical-critical methods alongside biblical commentaries. In this paper, the use of St. Thomas’ writings on Hebrews 6:1-12 through an evangelical lens will be explored, navigating critiques of Protestant historical-criticism and “evangelical Thomism,” while highlighting the common “highest goods” of the centrality of Scripture and Christocentrism.
