Abstract

This essay is a critical evaluation of John Locke's account of natural right as it is manifest in the biblical scholarship of J. Wellhausen and C.E.B. Cranfield. It provides a summary of the accounts of law given by Wellhausen and Cranfield respectively in order to show that certain views of law, that is, certain theological-political teachings, have been central to the emergence of modern biblical scholarship. In both Wellhausen and Cranfield it can be observed that stylistic and literary arguments are mustered in support of theological-political teachings. Finally, we argue that these accounts of "law" and "right" find their formative articulation in the writings of J. Locke, and in particular, in his early work entitled, Questions Concerning the Law of Nature.
