‘Biblical Reasoning’, Reader’s Guide

Having assigned John Webster’s essay, ‘Biblical Reasoning’ for the first week of an introductory course in systematic theology, I re-read it and discovered that it’s denser and more difficult than I remembered. So I produced this short guide which summarises the different sections of the essay, offers definitions of difficult terminology and translations of bits of Latin, and suggests some questions to aid reading. I post it here on the off-chance it might be useful to someone else.
