  • Re: Has Faithlife stated a policy on The Future, Discontinuing Books, Wokeness, Etc?

    Just to potentially throw gasoline on this fire, while it is normal for when the text changes in a work for there to be a new edition, there have been times where this practice has not been followed. The biggest example I can give in Logos is the text of the ESV bible. The publishers have updated/changed the base text over the decades and the Logos

    [quote user="xnman"]1. Does Mark 16:16 apply only because of "baptism" or does it apply because of "believes" and "baptism"? [/quote] Only God knows. But it does seem in scripture that belief and baptism do go together. As a Lutheran, we say belief clings to that water... We are earthly, and so we tend to need things coming here to earth. I can point

    And a year later Verbum is offering another collection of NCP's Augustine series. Grabbing the freebie is, again, an obvious choice. Augustine was a teacher of rhetoric, and so knew how to communicate. Free sermons from one of the most important Christian theologians? Yes please!!!

    For this Lutheran, I turn to Luther's Small Catechism on Baptism: THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY BAPTISM As the head of the family should teach it in a simple way to his household First What is Baptism? Baptism is not just plain water, but it is the water included in God’s command and combined with God’s word. Which is that word of God? Christ our

  • Re: Buying Legacy Packages is Hard Work

    With regards to "Eastern Rite" vs. "Orthodox", Eastern Rite is those Eastern bodies that are in full communion with the Bishop of Rome, while the "Orthodox" see that fellowship as broken. And so the Eastern RIte packages come under Verbum in Faithlife marketing since they are in union with Rome, but Orthodox are treated as an independent "denomination

    I am not Roman Catholic, let alone an expert in their Canon Law, so I cannot officially state anything. If I have learned anything from talking with Roman Catholics, it is that everything that comes out of the Vatican has a nuance that it is easy to misunderstand by outsiders. What little I do understand is that the official text of CCC is the Latin

  • Re: William Albright's Matthew Commentary Pretty Good (AYB)

    First of all, it is very short for a commentary - and so cannot and does not include a lot of things. Second of all, he takes a minority position on the Synoptic Problem - namely, the priority of Matthew over Mark. But is is so short that he doesn't take that much space to actually argue for it.

  • Re: William Albright's Matthew Commentary Pretty Good (AYB)

    Back when I was in school, a professor said that reading - and writing - commentaries is pretty boring because they are expected to say something about every significant issue of the text, even if you have nothing new or interesting to say... And many of the early Anchor Bible volumes are exceptions to this. They only talk about what they find interesting
