oven temperature versus temperature of what's in the oven

This may seem like a silly question, because I think the answer is illogical (at least to me), but I cannot find the answer. If you put a pot of soup in an oven to cook "low and slow," will the temperature of the contents of the pot ever equal the temperature of the oven? If I set the oven to 200 degrees so the soup will cook just below the boiling point, will the soup temperature get to 200 degrees, or must I set the oven temperature higher?
