New Biblical Theology Blog

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Jim Hamilton, who has recently been added to the Southern Seminary faculty in the area of biblical theology, along with some friends have begun a very helpful biblical theology blog.

Since the area of biblical theology is one of great interest for me, I thought I would pass this new blog along. For those who do not know, biblical theology is a technical term; it does not simply refer to theology that is biblical, though that is its goal. For introductions and definitions, etc., visit Biblical Theology today.

To get an idea of how biblical theology affects my preaching, see our Route 66 series where we take an entire book of the Bible and present it in one message in an attempt to show how that book fits within the history of salvation.

If you are interested in learning more about biblical theology, here are some good resources that will get you going:

Pelosi Gets Unwanted Lesson in Catholic Theology
AP story by Rachel Zoll

Politics can be treacherous. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi walked on even riskier ground in a recent TV interview when she attempted a theological defense of her support for abortion rights.

Roman Catholic bishops consider her arguments on St. Augustine and free will so far out of line with church teaching that they have issued a steady stream of statements to correct her.

Entrusted with the Gospel: Living Out the Vision of 2 Timothy
The Gospel Coalition National Conference
April 21-23, 2009
Chicago

The theme of this Conference gets to the heart of the book of Second Timothy. As Paul is mentoring a young Timothy, he is communicating the great privilege of proclaiming the gospel to the world. In an age bereft of courageous leadership, declining biblical literacy, and rising cultural accommodation, a prophetic voice from the center is needed, a voice that faithfully speaks the ancient text to our contemporary context. This Conference seeks a renewal of faithful preaching that is rooted in the Scriptures and centered on the gospel.

Plenary Talks
1. Tim Keller, “The Grand Demythologizer: The Gospel and Idolatry” (Acts 19:21–41)

2. John Piper, “The Promise of Life” (2 Timothy 1:1–12)

3. Phil Ryken, “The Pattern of Sound Words” (2 Timothy 1:13–2:13)

4. Mark Driscoll, “Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth” (2 Timothy 2:14–26)

5. K. Edward Copeland, “Shadowlands: Pitfalls and Parodies of Gospel-Centered Ministry” (2 Timothy 3:1–9)

6. Bryan Chapell, “Preach the Word!” (2 Timothy 3:10–4:5)

7. Ligon Duncan, “Finishing Well” (2 Timothy 4:6–22)

8. Ajith Fernando, “Gospel-Faithful Mission for the Next Christendom”

9. D.A. Carson, “‘That by All Means I Might Win Some’: Faithfulness and Flexibility in Gospel Proclamation” (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)

I want to introduce the Gospel Coalition to those who may not be familiar with it. The Gospel Coalition has just put up new videos introducing who they are and what they do. In addition, the videos tackle questions such as, “What is the gospel?” The videos are found on the front page of the website here.

Under resources, you will find sermons by many of today’s evangelical, gospel-centered pastors. Enjoy!

Grace and peace,

Pastor Juan

From Baptist Press article by David Roach

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–With controversial faith healer Todd Bentley announcing that he is separating from his wife, charismatic leaders J. Lee Grady and Stephen Strang have reacted by saying someone should have raised questions about Bentley earlier.

Grady, editor of the popular charismatic magazine Charisma, said the way thousands celebrated Bentley despite his moral and theological shortcomings demonstrated a lack of discernment that pervades the charismatic movement.

“We’re spiritually hungry — which can be a good thing,” Grady wrote in an Aug. 13 column. “But sometimes hungry people will eat anything.”
