    The Five Step Bible Programme: Part 2: Ezekiel 28

    In this, and the next, 5 Minute Bible podcasts we’ll begin to discover how the Five Step Bible programme helps us make good sense of, and discover God’s message for us in, a rather difficult and obscure passage from Ezekiel. Because it is a difficult passage, to do this in just two 5 minute podcasts [&hellip...

    The Five Step Bible Programme: Part 1: Introduction

    In this and two following podcasts in this series (with later I expect a screencast that will cover much the same material but not in a 5 minute format) will begin to present what I’m calling “The Five Step Bible Programme” which is developed out of teaching a similar scheme from: Duvall, J Scott, and [&hellip...

    Being Ideal Readers: 2 putting it all together

    In part two we get drawn to the hymn in Phil 2 and discover not only what Jesus’ disscension is all about, but also get to understand the talk of us being gifts in Eph 4:11-13 better. (If you have not listened to part 1 do listen to that first.)...

    Another Biblical Studies podcast series

    Text,  canon, and the woman caught in adultery

    The pericope in John 7:53-8:11 is a fascinating test case in the interaction of text criticism and canon. Both the history of canon, and textual criticism seem dull and unexciting. Yet here they combine into a detective story or a theological conundrum that contributes to making the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy conflict with most [&hellip...

    Matthew 5:17ff. and reading the Old Testament

    More than 5 minutes, so not a podcast for here, but if you want to listen to something longer (like 30 mins plus question time) I’ve posted this morning’s sermon to my blog: Matthew 5:17ff. : How to Read the Old Testament. Taking the “difficult” passage from the sermon on the mount and asking what [&hellip...
