Abstract

This essay examines Robert W. Jenson's understanding of how Scripture functions for the Church, particularly in terms of how the canonical triad of Scripture, creed, and office form an interpretive synergism for helping the church fulfill its task of gospel-speaking in the post-apostolic world. Jenson's views are then brought into a brief conversation with various strands of Pentecostal belief regarding the role Scripture plays within that tradition. This interchange highlights areas in which both parties are in agreement as well as areas where the positions of each might inform the other's views. Given that each in their own way seeks to understand the role of the Spirit in helping the church remain faithful to its apostolic roots, an exchange of ideas between the two parties might give each a greater appreciation for the multifaceted work of the Spirit in the preservation and proclamation of the gospel in the world.
