    Ervine Sheblatzm – Feathers on the Nose: Paul’s Radical Pastoral Theology for the Non-Anthropic World

    Ervine Sheblatzm – Feathers on the Nose: Paul’s Radical Pastoral Theology for the Non-Anthropic World

    Episode: Triple-crown episode!! Sheblatzm is back for the 3rd time, and he’s not holding back. This episode will revolutionalize the way you think about theology, science, and yourself. But it’s not all pie-in-the-sky theologizing here. No way. Through accessible communication Sheblazm tells heart-wrenching but ultimately heart-warming stories of life on the front lines of science and theology where the anthropic and non-anthropic meet and merge. Sheblatzm’s latest work continues right where St. Francis left off.
    Guest: Professor Dr. Ervine Sheblatzm is a self-proclaimed scientist and theologian who allegedly runs a “centre of excellence” and farmstead in England’s beautiful lake district.  As he puts it, his work is “not just ground-breaking; it’s ground re-defining.” He works at his “centre of excellence” with his friend Dave. Ervine Sheblazm is the author of Paul, Multiverse Theory , and the Journey of the Inner Soul (2018), Faultlines in the Horizon: Paul’s Dawning Age Marches On (2019), and most recently, Feathers on the Nose: Paul’s Radical Pastoral Theology for the Non-Anthropic World (2020).

    “Humans have been at the center of anthropology long enough. It’s high time we had a theological anthropology that set aside our most narcissistic species and focuses on what is most important to God: birds, rocks, bridges, what have you. Once again Dr. Sheblatzm treads where few dare and serves us a sober look at Paul’s world, a dish best served cold.” – Dr Dru Johnson, Pundit.

    (Theology) Ian McFarland – The Word Made Flesh

    (Theology) Ian McFarland – The Word Made Flesh

    Episode: Has the Chalcedonian Definition stood the test of time and theological challenge? Ian McFarland thinks so and advocates for a “Chalcedonianism without reserve” in his newest book, The Word Made Flesh: A Theology of the Incarnation (WJK, 2019). McFarland joins co-host Amy Hughes to talk about what he means by this phrase and how churches who affirm the language laid out at the Council of Chalcedon in 451 (Catholic, Protestant, and most Orthodox traditions) don’t always follow through on the implications. What is the disconnect here and why does it matter? Spoiler alert: It has something to do with the gospel…
    Guest:  Dr. Ian A. McFarland currently serves as Robert W. Woodruff Chair of Theology at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, where he returned after four years as Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge. He had previously been on the Candler faculty from 2005–2015 and before that taught at the University of Aberdeen. Professor McFarland’s research has focused on Christology, theological anthropology, and the doctrine of creation. His interests also include the use of the Bible in theology, the relationship between theology and science, and the thought of Maximus the Confessor. He is the sole author of six books, including The Word Made Flesh: A Theology of the Incarnation (2019) and From Nothing: A Theology of Creation (2014); he also served as lead editor for the Cambridge Dictionary of Christian Theology (2010).

    Jeanette Hagen Pifer – Faith as Participation

    Jeanette Hagen Pifer – Faith as Participation

    Episode: In this third episode of a mini-series on “faith” (pistis), Jeanette Hagen Pifer brings a different method to bear on pistis, looking at what we might glean from wider conceptual categories related to “faith,” like persuasion and boasting. And she was a missionary in the former Soviet Union before becoming a professor! Join her and OnScript co-host Matthew W. Bates, as they discuss Jeanette’s new book, Faith as Participation.
    Guest: Jeanette Hagen Pifer is Assistant Professor of New Testament at Biola University She has served in a variety of ministry capacities including evangelistic and humanitarian work with orphans in the former Soviet Union, helping to facilitate for theological and ministry training around the world, and serving in a church plant in Whittier, Calif. She completed her Ph.D., studying under Professor John Barclay at Durham University. Her research focused on the Pauline concept of faith. Hagen has presented academic papers at a number of conferences in the U.S. and in Europe. She also contributed to the Lightfoot Legacy, a three volume set of previously unpublished commentaries by this foremost English NT scholar of the 19th century. Prior to coming to Biola, Hagen taught at Cranmer Hall in Durham England, a theological college focused on training individuals called to full-time Christian service.
    The Book: Jeanette Hagen Pifer, Faith as Participation: An Exegetical Study of Some Key Pauline Texts (WUNT 486; Mohr Siebeck, 2019). Jeanette Hagen Pifer contends that several of the apparent conundrums in recent Pauline scholarship turn out to derive from an inadequate understanding of what Paul means by faith. By first exploring the question of what Paul means by faith outside of the classic justification passages in Romans and Galatians, she reveals faith as an active and productive mode of human existence. Yet this existence is not a form of human self-achievement. On the contrary, faith is precisely the denial of self-effort and a dependence upon the prior gracious work of Christ. In this way, faith is self-negating and self-involving participation in the Christ-event. (Publisher’s description, abridged).

    Nijay Gupta – Paul and the Language of Faith

    Nijay Gupta – Paul and the Language of Faith

    Episode: After years of relative silence, conversations about “faith” (pistis) in the New Testament and early Christianity are suddenly blossoming. Pistis is essential. But because it’s multifaceted and can be used in so many contexts, Nijay Gupta compares it to a Swiss Army knife. OnScript co-host Matthew Bates welcomes guest Nijay Gupta to speak about Nijay’s exciting new book, Paul and the Language of Faith.
    Guests: Nijay K. Gupta (PhD, Durham) teaches New Testament at Portland Seminary (Portland, OR). He has written academic articles and books, most recently Paul and the Language of Faith (Eerdmans, 2020). He is also co-editor of The State of New Testament Studies (Baker Academic, 2019) and co-editor of the planned second edition of the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters (IVP Academic, ~2022). Watch out for his soon-to-appear A Beginner’s Guide to the New Testament (Baker Academic, 2020). Gupta blogs at www.cruxsolablog.com. When he is not working, he likes to cook Asian food, watch superhero movies, drink good coffee, go to a Portland Timbers soccer game, and hang out with his wife Amy and his three kids..
    The Book: Nijay Gupta, Paul and the Language of Faith (Eerdmans, 2020). A dynamic reading of Paul’s faith language, outlining its subtle nuances as belief, trust, and faithfulness. Faith language permeates the letters of Paul. Yet, its exact meaning is not always clear. Many today, reflecting centuries of interpretation, consider belief in Jesus to be a passive act. In this important book, Nijay Gupta challenges common assumptions in the interpretation of Paul and calls for a reexamination of Paul’s faith language. Gupta argues that Paul’s faith language resonates with a Jewish understanding of covenant involving goodwill, trust, and expectation. Paul’s understanding of faith involves the transformation of one’s perception of God and the world through Christ, relational dependence on Christ, as well as active loyalty to Christ. Pastors and scholars alike will benefit from this close examination of Paul’s understanding and use of faith language. For Gupta, Paul’s understanding involves a divine-human relationship centered on Christ that believes, trusts, and obeys. (Publisher’s description, unabridged).
    The OnScript Quip (our review): This book should excite scholars and pastors. Gupta reveals the full spectrum of “faith” language in early Christianity. It is an exciting exposition of how faith language interfaces with loyalty, covenant, cognition—and much more. Our understanding of early Christian theology has been enriched. — Matthew W. Bates, author of Gospel Allegiance, OnScript

    James Diamond – Jewish Theology Unbound

    Episode: Dru Johnson talks with Jim Diamond about his long term project of thinking theologically with the biblical authors. Through close readings of key biblical texts and Jewish sages, Diamond warns us of the “ethical gravity of avoiding reflection.” In other words, there is a general warning in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament to be philosophical. That’s an exciting claim to explore!

Diamond is a full professor and the Joseph and Wolf Lebovic Chair of Jewish Studies at the University of Waterloo and former director of the university’s Friedberg Genizah Project. He is the author of Maimonides and the Hermeneutics of Concealment(SUNY Press, 2002), which was awarded the Canadian Jewish Book Award; Converts,Heretics, and Lepers: Maimonides and the Outsider(University of Notre Dame Press, 2008), which was  awarded  Notable Selection- Jordan Schnitzer Book Award as well as the  Canadian Jewish Book Award; and the book we discussed in this episode Jewish Theology Unbound (Oxford University Press, 2018).
