    Great stuff in that link—both the post and some of the comments-with-Holmes' responses. This kind of post is very helpful for a NT guy like me who cannot take the time to read much contemporary systematic theology but who is (hopefully at least somewhat!) aware of the ways in which my theology informs my NT exegesis.

    Keep 'em coming.

    I brought up this concern to a professor once. He seemed to disagree with my definition of systematic theology. On the greater scale though, I am so glad that the undergrad curriculum seems to be realizing the need to treat Systematics and Biblical theology as distinct, yet related endeavors. Great article!
