Where to start?

Is the Bible the starting place for our understanding of Jesus, or is Jesus the starting place for understanding the Bible? I’ll just link to one post at the end of a little flurry. Denny Burk wants to keep the focus on Scripture, others (for theological, philosophical or apologetic reasons – at least some of them) think it’s better to start with the authority of Jesus. Much discussion. Back again to the question of foundationalism of some sort. Others might think the whole pursuit is problematic, I would guess. But our conclusion has practical outworkings, so we can’t simply punt.
