On this week’s episode, Mat Hotho and Celia Ferman interview the scholar Luke Timothy Johnson. Dr. Johnson is Professor Emeritus of New Testament scholar at Emory University.
This discussion covers pastoral epistles which are a group of three in the New Testament: the First Epistle to Timothy (1 Timothy) the Second Epistle to Timothy (2 Timothy), and the Epistle to Titus. They are presented as letters from Paul the Apostle to Timothy and to Titus. Dr. Johnson lays out how he has learned to understand the authority of the letters and how they are important to the life of the church. Their talk about how to gain wisdom from things that scandalize our minds is very helpful.
