    Jaco Gericke – A Philosophical Theology of the Old Testament

    Jaco Gericke – A Philosophical Theology of the Old Testament

    How should we read the Old Testament? Is there only one valid interpretation or a plurality of interpretations? If the latter, then how do we maintain intellectual humility and find valid methods for addressing the texts of Scripture? For a first-ever joint episode with the Center for Hebraic Thought, Dru talks to Dr. Jaco Gericke of North-West University, South Africa about his journey to philosophical theology, and some of his current research, particularly his recent book, A Philosophical Theology of the Old Testament: A historical, experimental, comparative and analytic perspective. Along the way, they discuss atheism, the necessity of bringing a philosophical perspective to biblical studies, developing reliable methods for reading Scripture, and even some terrible jokes.

    Brant Pitre & Michael Barber – Paul, a New Covenant Jew

    Brant Pitre & Michael Barber – Paul, a New Covenant Jew

    Who was Paul? How might we understand him as a Jew? What type of Jew was he? How do our answers impact our interpretation of Paul’s theology of justification, Christology, the death of Christ, and more besides? In this episode, Matthew Bates and Chris Tilling talk to two of the co-authors of the new book, Paul, a New Covenant Jew: Rethinking Pauline Theology, by Brant Pitre, Michael P. Barber and John A. Kincaid (Eerdmans, 2019). After presenting a case for thinking about Paul as a new covenant Jew, the authors discuss Paul and apocalyptic, Pauline Christology, the cross and atonement theology, justification through divine sonship and the Lord’s Supper. Sparkling with fresh insights, this book contributes to numerous debates in exciting ways. This is, as one reviewer put it, “Paul the pop-up book”!

    Christopher Hays – Isaiah and Assyria

    Christopher B. Hays sits down with Matt Lynch to discuss one of the most important and hotly contested sections of Isaiah.

In this episode, we talk all things Isaiah, corn whisky, colonizing Mars, and other important subjects related to Chris' recent book "The Origins of Isaiah 24-27."

Great podcast!

I really enjoyed the subject of one of the podcast episodes so I plan on continuing through the episodes. Some of my professors are featured on this also.

Three casts on pistols

These casts are difficult for the layperson to understand. Too much jargon. Who is your audience - other theologians or laypersons looking for a meaningful conversation about applying faith to real life??

These casts are much better than sermons.

Great except for the silly question segment

It is so cool to listen to these scholars explain their research and give some serious depth to old topics. Thanks for pulling these interviews together! My only request is to get rid of the silly question segment, it never fits and just distracts from an otherwise thoughtful podcast. I have to fast forward through it.
