Pontifical Biblical Commission discusses biblical anthropology
April 07, 2016
The Pontifical Biblical Commission, an advisory body of biblical scholars under the auspices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, began a five-day meeting on April 4 devoted to the theme of biblical anthropology.
“Through the Bible, God points out the solid basis and secure orientation for human behavior,” Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, the Congregation’s prefect, said as the meeting began at the Domus Sanctae Marthae.
Noting that many believe that “man's realization is to be implemented in an independent manner, without reference to God and to his law,” Cardinal Müller added that "the law of God does not eliminate the freedom of man.”
Pope Francis greeted the commission’s members on April 5.
