NT Wright on Seminary Dropout The N.T. Wright Podcast

    • Christentum

Tom took some time to talk with Shane Blackshear on his podcast Seminary Dropout in May of 2015. Some things discussed on the show… …associating Reformed theology with people like John Piper, Tim Keller, and others with similar theology, and that sometimes causes confusion to know that Wright sees much of his own views in line with reformed tradition, when it seems like his tone is much different that those people just mentioned. …how do we know that God intended for his authority to be given through scripture. In other words how do we know that some day we’re not going to stand before God with him saying ‘Hey the Bible was just words that were written several thousands years ago by people who were just describing their experiences with me the best they can but it wasn’t suppose to be anything more to you than inspirational and a lose guide’ ? ….in the new introduction The Challenge of Jesus, Wright spent some time talking about the idea that he originally wrote TCoJ on the other side Sept 11, 2001. In what ways Wright thinks that changes our perspective on the words he wrote in TCoJ? …what view the reformation brought of Jesus that was a change from the old view. …what view the enlightenment brought. …the historicity of Jesus and how the oral tradition worked. …the parable of the sower in Mark 4:1-20. What we usually miss by not paying attention to Jesus’ Jewish roots. …how all of this relates to the Christian task and vision today.
