I am still not seeing the possibility of adding a Biblical Theology section in Verbum 6.9
6.9.0.0022  I am very impatient to see it as I have yet to figure out why it is a separate discipline.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I'm in the same boat except with Logos instead of Verbum...

Biblical Theology looks at theological concepts as they are progressively revealed throughout redemptive history, whereas Systematic Theology systematizes the whole of what revelation has to say on those concepts.

Biblical Theology is the backdrop to a sound Systematic Theology. In Systematic Theology, there is the danger of placing things together that ought not to be placed together. Biblical Theology is more apt to understand passages of Scripture within their overall contexts of the book they are found in, whereas Systematics could potentially overlook these contexts. On the other hand, Biblical Theology could potentially overlook other places and Scripture that should have a bearing on how we understand certain doctrines, and so Systematics is to connect these together. Ideally, the two should work together.

Exactly. Good succinct explanation.

Please run "Update Resources" command and the app should download the Biblical Theologies Cross References resource that will allow you to see the section.

I tried that yesterday but didn't see it complete so I'll try today and see what happens.
