The focus of Old and New Testament is reliable, responsible Bible interpretation. Theological exegesis of the Bible is accountable to the rest of the academic scholarly community and to communities of faith (in Africa and abroad) where the interpretation of Scripture takes place. Therefore the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible need to be interpreted taking cognisance of the world of the Biblical authors (then) and readers (now). In continuity with the Biblical text itself, the goal of this interpretation is the liberation of the church, the community and creation.
