Snuck a quick DL in today, covering Justin Welby's inability to answer a direct question on the nature of sin, and then spending most of our time continuing the discussion of the I Am sayings of Jesus in light of the comments of Craig Evans and Mike Licona. Hope it is helpful!

Introduction

This book, in one sense, concentrates on hermeneutics and theological method. I contend that New Covenant Theology (NCT) gets the covenant of works and the Sabbath wrong because it gets the garden of Eden wrong, and it gets the garden of Eden wrong because it gets crucial aspects of hermeneutics wrong. The garden of Eden (and its surrounding context [...]

Psalm 104:30 says, “You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the earth.” Here both creation and renewal are attributed to the Spirit of God. But notice one more thing about this text. Notice these words carefully: “You send forth Your Spirit.” Now listen to Bavinck: “special properties and works are attributed to each of the three [...]

Nothing shapes how we interpret and apply the Bible as much as our understanding of covenant. Richard Barcellos offers us a helpful blend of biblical exegesis and theological reflection on the implications of covenant theology for God's relationship with Adam and for the Lord's Day. Though this book's discussion is framed by debates among Baptist brethren, the issues are of great consequence to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. It [...]

Note: Devotion taken from last Sunday's sermon on John 4:24-42.
Come, see a man which told me all things that ever I did: Is this not the Christ? (John 4:29).


Notice the words of the Samaritan woman to her fellow citizens. I see in this a model strategy for introducing Jesus to those who do not know him. It is the ministry of invitation. What does a [...]

Most Protestants have never heard of “Aerial Toll Houses.” The idea of Aerial Toll Houses are built upon some personal revelations of Eastern Orthodox saints, Tradition and a verse or two from scripture. Father Thomas Hopko stated on an episode of The Illumined Heart that virtually every church Father held some form of this doctrine. According to Eastern Orthodox Tradition the soul, when it leaves the body, must go through a series [...]

Day 279

Of Religious Worship and the Sabbath Day.

Chapter 22, Paragraph 5.

“…and the Lord's Supper…”

Scripture Lookup

1 Corinthians 11:26

Reflection

Like baptism, the Lord's Supper is a public demonstration of union with Christ. Rather than an individual declaring her union with Christ, communion is that individual joined with the church in declaring their union with Christ. When we partake of the bread and wine with fellow believers, we remember the night the [...]

TO MR. JOSHUA KEEVIL

WESTWOOD, Aug. 30, 1890.

DEAR MR. KEEVIL,—

What a patriarchal family you are — here is Joshua sending me a letter from Noah, containing news about Enoch and Job and his girls. It makes me feel proud to be in such ancient company.

God bless you all. I will send Noah a receipt. Like his namesake, he seems to have had enough rain.

Well, we shall get home. You are a [...]
