A Beautiful Scandal

Article by   October 2018
Newton's story is a beautiful scandal. Like Paul, he increasingly woke to the nightmare of his sin personified by the beautiful black faces of his victims. But God's grace had introduced a new reality: undeserved pardon. The man who should have died a thousand deaths for his sin died at peace in the hope of new life because of the single death of the Savior Jesus. continue

Theophany: A Biblical Theology of God Appearing

Article by   April 2018
When we are looking for God's Word to edify us, instruct us, or correct us, it is much easier to turn to Philippians than to wonder how the Commander of the Army of the Lord (Josh. 5:13-15) helps me be more Christ-like at the next parent-teacher conference.

The Foundation of the New Perspective

Article by   August 2017
Admittedly the New Perspective on Paul (NPP) isn't so new anymore. As a significant scholarly hermeneutical movement, it goes back at least as far as the late 1970s with the groundbreaking work of E. P. Sanders. It goes back even further if we take into consideration the endeavors of a Montefiore and a Moore. The NPP is old enough now to have had a plethora of erudite nuanced critical responses. One of the most recent, and I would suggest, best interactions with the NPP is Robert Cara's Cracking the Foundation of the New Perspective on Paul. continue
