    [quote user="Bob Diebel"] It is often true "timing is everything" A sequence of events can reveal much. [/quote] So true! Couldn't agree more...

  • Re: Timeline issues - Date of writing of Corinthian epistles

    Many of the commentaries give complex timings and compositional theories, especially as to the composition of the 2nd Corinthians (exegetes seem to love them): Letter A (which st. Paul refers to in 1 Corinthians 5:9, now lost), letter B (the one we know as 1st Corinthians), Letter C ("the letter of tears", which Paul maybe referring to in 2 Corinthians

    [quote user="Dave Hooton"] "firstborn" is plural and genitive.. Hence "assembly of who are enrolled>". [/quote] An even better translation: "assembly of [those] firstborn..." (bringing out the plural genitive)..?

    Agreed. Did a quick search: The NIB (Fred Craddock), WBC (William Lane), Hermeneia (Attridge), NIGTC (Ellingworth), AYB (Koester), NICNT (Cockerill), NTL (Johnson), Lenski , NICNT ( Hughes ) all acknowledge it’s a plural (as it is in the original Greek) – hence referring to the “assembly of the firstborn s "

    Even though a Lutheran myself, I would recommend this book by Catholic biblical scholar Raymond E. Brown: 101 Questions and Answers on the Bible | Logos Bible Software He has e.g. chapters on alleged conflicts between Bible scholarship and the Church, on the nature of inspiration , on literal/symbolical interpretation , for example the creation accounts

  • Re: Preaching

    [quote user="David Ames"] Thanks for the lesson on how to start planning a sermon! [/quote] My pleasure! This method seems highly usable, and I like how it makes you (and your listeners) to deal with ordinary life experiences. I myself have come to recognize too much theorizing as my pet peeve! This prevents it from happening, or, at least diminishes

    Here are two skeleton sermons I made using the Gospel reading of the last Sunday of the Church Year (Matthew 25: 31-46; the Final Judgment) using the inductive method – I haven’t still decided, which one to use, but I have a pulpit shift coming on 21 st of November: Sermon 1, “Unfair”: Life seems unfair, doesn’t it?

    I just finished this one: Inductive Preaching: Helping People Listen | Logos Bible Software I must heartily recommend it! The Lewises critizice the way many preachers use only deductive logic and assume authority, announcing the proposition they are going to defend – at the outset of the sermon. This may work in small rural congregations, where everybody
