Really interesting distinction that makes sense of Romans 8:1. Whilst I may not agree with all the conclusions, the analysis of the Greek words is fascinating!
We’ve been watching Michael Hardin’s epic series on the Gospel of John. They are amazing stuff. You may not agree with everything Michael says but you have to admire his insights and depth of knowledge.
You’ll find them on Facebook. Just search for the above. Enjoy!
(Michael is the author of “The Jesus Driven Life” book, among others)
Fascinating and stimulating podcast with Brad Jersak. Listen to the end – it may well leave you in tears:
This Q&A with Brad Jersak gives a great illustration of where our own theology now sits. The Q&A starts with an intro and history of Brad’s early ministry, so if you want to cut to the ‘and how has my theology changed’ piece, that starts at about 20 mins in.
Hope you enjoy it (Oh, and be warned: there are a few “making s**t up” comments which are part of a shared joke, as becomes clear later in the chat).
I guess I should have already known all about this (binding the strong man) but I didn’t. Fascinating.
Catholic Nick does a great job at analysing Col 2:14 and exposing (again!) the inherent bias in our English translations …
Now that we are re-thinking the sacrificial system and how it pertains to Jesus’s sacrifice, many questions arise. Here a Presbyterian asks a key question over on PTM’s website, and Brad Jersak provides a clear and really helpful response…
Brad Jersak is one of those rare guys who has grasped fully that God the Father is not some imposing judgemental figurehead we construct, but that he is, as testified by scripture, exactly like Jesus.
In this recent post, Brad takes a look at “sin” – universally understood as “missing the mark”. But what does that mean? What is this “mark” that we keep missing? …
I just love this one. Our insulting arrogance exposed.
Although we watched the “Monster God or Monster Man” debate between Dr Michael Brown and Brian Zahnd some time ago, we only recently stumbled across this interesting review of it (which contains a link to the debate). The debate is a great starting point to get a handle on the issues… and then Rob Grayson’s review provides helpful reflection.
