Issues Relating to the Text of the Bible

Almost Mega Length DL with Five Major Topics

Started off with the MSM’s hyping of the First Apocalypse of James, a well known gnostic work from, at the earliest, the late second century, most probably the third.  Had a “Story Time with Uncle Jimmy” where I read the entirety of the work so you can respond to co-workers or others who raise the topic.  Then we discussed Bill Mounce’s comments on “whoever” at John 3:16. Followed that with a quick discussion of Francois Veron and the use of skepticism by Rome in the Counter-Reformation. Then I read a Muslim article about today’s Supreme Court case about religious freedom and what the Qur’an honestly teaches about homosexuality (and the foolishness of liberal Muslim groups who have opposed religious liberty).  Finally we spent some time reading and responding to Dr. Sonny Hernandez’s response to me on Arminianism and the Gospel, and frankly, I still haven’t a clue exactly where he is coming from.  But, we gave it the old college try!  Nearly 110 minutes for the program today.

Beyond Mega Length Edition of the DL: Textual Critical Topics, Islamic Topics, Response to Theodore Zachariades

Went two hours and eleven minutes today (sorry!), but had a lot to cover. Too many topics to list, but basically a lot on the new Tyndale House Greek New Testament, textual critical topics, Muslim apologetics issues, the Qur’an, and then responses to Dr. Theodore Zachariades on the topic of the decree of God and the will of man, i.e., the topic of compatibilism.  Only program this week as I am headed for St. Charles for my annual pilgrimage!

Ephesians 4:29-32 Applied to Christian Communication, A Hack-Job Video, and Francis’ Unorthodox Views

Started off with some geeky stuff, a few new books, etc., then moved to Ephesians 4 and how we are to behave as believers, especially in the realm of communication.  Moved seamlessly into a hack-job video that P&P is promoting, a personal attack upon me.  Played the whole thing showing how whoever produced it (Hall knows and isn’t saying) purposefully avoided context, proper categories, etc., and sought only to mislead the viewer.  It is dishonest at its core.  After that had a few brief comments on Mormonism, and then finished up with an article about Pope Francis’ unorthodox views.  A 90 minute edition today!

Jason Lisle on Apologetics and Science, Honesty in Textual Criticism, More Reformation History

Started off with my good friend and brother in the Lord, Dr. Jason Lisle, head of the Biblical Science Institute.  Jason and I discussed some of his books and, well, lots of super geeky/nerdy stuff.  Then we really shifted gears and I addressed an accusation made against me last week saying that my daring to talk about the textual variant at Luke 23:34 (“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing”) is somehow giving “ammunition” to the enemy.  Then we moved back to the Reformation history series, filling up a full 90 minutes.  Lots of information today on a very wide range of topics!  Enjoy!

Archbishop of Canterbury Can’t Answer Direct Questions, More on the I Am Sayings of Jesus

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!
