Issues Relating to the Text of the Bible

Cultures That Abandon God’s Light Lose that Light, Then Hebrews 1:3 Textual Critical Discussion

Mainly discussed the move toward embracing transgenderism as a proper Christian viewpoint by the Church of England in the first half hour, and then moved to a discussion of a textual variant in Hebrews 1:3 as an illustration of a number of things in the second half hour.  Both live from Evergreen, Colorado via Skype.  Hope it is helpful!

Colossians 3 in P46, Hagmann’s Take on the Dialogue, Beginning of Review/Response to Abu Zakariya

Started off with some thoughts based upon Colossians 3 (looking at P46 as our basis), and then moved on to consider the “dark underside of the Christian web” in light of recent attacks and smears upon the ministry.  Then we started looking at Abu Zakariya’s new book, Jesus: Man, Messenger, Messiah (Iera).

John 11, Surah 3, and Consistency

An interesting program today where I spent a good deal of time on John 11 in P45, discussing its meaning and the context.  Then I moved to Surah 3 in the Qur’an looking at what it says about Jesus.  With that as the background, I made some comments regarding the current controversy and the slanderous attacks being leveled at me and the ministry.  I hope it is edifying.

A Textual Critical Geeky Dividing Line

Started off with a little reflection on sacralism prompted by a tweet posted by Albert Mohler, but fairly quickly transitioned into total textual critical geekdom.  First made some comments about the Textus Receptus, but then jumped 1300 years earlier into the story and started looking at the nomina sacra and early papyus manuscripts.  Afraid this one will be a little harder to listen to than most—much easier to watch than to listen, but still hopefully useful and interesting for those who like to dig a little deeper.
