Flotsam and jetsam (1/24)
- Roger Olson argues (lengthily) that Arminianism is legitimately evangelical.
Arminians affirm everything necessary for a fully evangelical soteriology; Calvinists require more. Why?
- Adam Neder has begun a series arguing that Calvin really was human.
I simply want to introduce you to a side of him that you may not know, and hopefully to persuade you that he does, after all, belong to the human race. And I want to do that by focusing on two of his close friendships.
- Brian LePort discusses Gadamer and biblical interpretation.
I have been taught the historical-grammatical approach to biblical hermeneutics both as an undergraduate student and as a graduate student. It has been useful, but it always left me wondering how this approach allows for the Scriptures to be the book of the church rather than merely an open source. It was not until this last semester when I encountered the philosophical hermeneutics of Hans-Georg Gadamer that my paradigm was shaken.
- Denny Burk offers a lengthy discussion of the textual problem in Luke 23:34 and why think thinks many experts are wrong when they conclude that Jesus’ prayer “Father, forgive them…” was not original.
- Derek Ouellette describes his first visit to an Eastern Orthodox church.
- Collin Hansen discusses the 10 most-searched-for Bible verses at Bible Gateway, and what he thinks is missing from the list.
- And, apparently it is possible to paralyze someone by giving them a hickey.
