Published by the Institute for Biblical Research, the Bulletin for Biblical Research acts as an instrument for understanding the religious senses of scripture. The aim is to publish articles that are both fully critical and generally accessible to the scholarly community. It is assumed as a matter of course that strictures of literary and historical reading apply in biblical exegesis. Yet current practice often does not acknowledge that religious meaning was the obvious context in which scriptural documents were produced, and the medium within which they were transmitted and received. The concern of the Institute is not to force all the articles it publishes into a single program, but to accord due interest to the religious sources and purposes of our texts. We invite the response of our readers, and contributions from any scholar who is engaged by the meanings one encounters in the discipline of exegesis.

The Institute for Biblical Research is an organization of evangelical Christian scholars with specialties in Old and New Testament and in ancillary disciplines. The official IBR website can be found at
