Celebrity Christian Culture – Kanye West, Francis Chan, John Crist – CTJ #60

Thank you to all our current listeners for joining us for our 60th episode – thank you to all our new listeners for joining us this week! This episode we touch on a variety of topics in the news recently including Kanye West converting to Christianity, Francis Chan’s announcement of moving to Asia, John MacArthur’s condemnation of women in leadership, and John Crist’s sexual misconduct.  We use these topics as a spring board to discuss the “Celebrity Christian” culture in America and as usual, find ourselves talking about lots more.

Biblical Interpretation Series – Part 3 of 3 – CTJ #56

Here in Episode #56, we are closing the 3-part series on Biblical Interpretation.  With last week’s episode featuring Dr. John Walton, we wanted to take the time to think through all the information we discussed before taking a final swing at the material.  We discuss our own personal growth during this short series, truth, translations, studying, and how to handle new evidences on varying degrees of Biblical doctrine & truth.  We hope you will find this episode, and this series, as helpful, and challenging, as we have as we wrap up.

Guest: Dr. John Walton – Biblical Interpretation Series – CTJ #55

This week, in episode #55, we are continuing a series on Biblical Interpretation and Understanding.  On this episode, since we are not “experts,” we are joined by an expert, Dr. John Walton, who is currently a professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College. Our discussion includes the ancient near east, Genesis 1, Biblical literature genres, changes of understanding over time, inspiration of scripture, and the timeless message of the Bible. We hope you enjoy our continued discussion on Biblical Interpretation with Dr. John Walton.
