Chasing Textual Criticism into BYU, then Open Phones

Started off with a (to me) really interesting discussion of a recent study in textual criticism that led me, in the minutes just before the program, off into the woods of Mormonism and BYU.  At least I thought it was fascinating!  But we eventually got out of the woods and did open phones on a wide variety of topics (isn’t that what open phones are all about?).  Almost 90 minutes in length today.

LGBTQ Tweets, Ehrman Dividing Mark and John, Open Phones

Talked a little bit about a Twitter exchange regarding LGBTQ books, and then moved to a rather full refutation of Bart Ehrman’s comments on Mark vs. John on the day of Jesus’ crucifixion (Nisan 13 vs. Nisan 14), and then went to open phones with once again a wide variety of calls and topics.  Always interesting questions from the Dividing Line audience!  Closed with a reminder that we need your help to underwrite our upcoming trip to South Africa, Zambia, and the UK (in May).  You can help support us in that matter here.

Humanzees, Jordan Peterson, Parallel Gospels, and Open Phones

Spent most of the start of the show looking at a video from Jordan Peterson and interacting with the concepts of suffering and human purpose in his lectures.  Dr. Peterson has been great in exposing the fundamental flaws and simple irrationality of many of the left’s pet projects today, and we can be very thankful for that, but we cannot use that as an excuse to not point out that the best a Jungian evolutionary worldview can produce (consistently) is a form of Pelagianism, a “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” moralism that lacks the key ingredients provided by full gospel proclamation.  We then moved on a brief discussion about Ehrman and historical standards, and then took a number of calls on a variety of topics.

The New GTY Assault Bible, NA29 Due in 2021, Billy Graham, then Back to Ehrman/Licona

Started off talking about the new “Preacher’s Bible” from Grace To You which I have now dubbed “The Assault Bible.”  Light hearted discussion, I assure you.  Then we talked about the announcement that the next editions of the NA and UBS Greek texts are due out in 2021/2022, and what that means.  Then we discussed the move on the part of many to banish Billy Graham to hell (seriously).  Finally, we got back to the Bart Ehrman/Mike Licona debate, focusing upon some of the key issues relating to Ehrman’s style of argumentation.

A Little Bill Johnson, a Bunch of Islamic Material, and an Intro to the Ehrman/Licona Debate

Took a little time to comment on my listening to some material on Bill Johnson (Bethel Church, Redding, CA) this morning at the start of the program, and then moved into a lengthy Islamic discussion, dealing with common misunderstandings on the topic of the atonement amongst Muslims, playing clips from the Wood/Ally debate, and a video from a Muslim in Australia. Then looked at Ijaz Ahmed’s comments on Surah 10:94 as well.  Finally moved into an introduction, at the end of the program, to the series we will do on the Ehrman/Licona debate that took place recently.  Almost two full hours today!
