Observations on the Happiness of Piglets

Missionary Blogs - Mon, 10/06/2014 - 05:00
They race past the rooster, grazing his wingtips, and he squawks, hops, crows in surprise. Around the water-tank pen of crocodiles who thrash at the sudden vibration, six piglets, striped, spotted,...

Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God– Part Ninety One

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Mon, 10/06/2014 - 02:43
The last chapter of Tom’s magnum opus is not quite what one might have expected. There are considerable reflections on modern secular Jewish thought (Benjamin, Marx, etc.) and on the philosopher Heidegger and his connection with the Nazis, and how this may, or may not have affected European theology vis a vis the Jewish character [Read More...]

Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God– Part Ninety

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Sun, 10/05/2014 - 02:41
Through out this long study of Paul, there have been certain texts that are the linchpins for Tom’s whole approach to the matter. Rom. 2.28-29 is one such text, but that text is part of the larger discussion in 2.17-29 where quite specifically the Jew is being addressed, not the follower of Christ, and he [Read More...]

Fall Forward

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Sat, 10/04/2014 - 10:15
The weak autumn sun Not warming the air, Slowly climbed up the sky Not seeming to try. Ascendancy now In the hands of the wind That would dictate the day That would blow things away. The leaves had surrendered And swirled to the ground Not clinging to trees Obeying the breeze. The grass was all [Read More...]

Walking in the Spirit...and in the wake of the storm

Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God– Part Eighty Nine

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Sat, 10/04/2014 - 02:24
This post will be dealing with pp. 1426-43 of the next to last chapter in this epic. Here Tom addresses at some length the ‘identity’ question. Before reading Tom’s critique I would suggest the readers of the blog read first my chapter entitled ‘The Trinity of Paul’s Identity’ in The Paulquest, as background for this [Read More...]

The Dear Abby of infertility

Missionary Blogs - Fri, 10/03/2014 - 13:23
It’s scary to put it all out there, to be vulnerable, to be transparent. Some people see it as brave, some people see it as “the younger generation and their over-sharingness”....
