Muzi_07 ,

Very much appreciate this Podcast

Thank you NT Wright and Justin for such a great podcast, I actually found Dr Tom’s teachings via someone who was critiquing his views on eschatology, and I have never stop following.

This podcast makes it easy to find your teachings and insights, and they presented with great simplicity. But what makes me love Dr Tom more, is his humility in both presenting his views and dealing with those who oppose him, no matter how rude or offensive they may be.

This has also helped me, and is a constant reminder to season my speech with salt, not only in what I say, but also in how I say it.

Well presented, enough time for substance but easy to fit into a daily schedule. An interesting range of topics with a breadth in answers and thought.
Refreshing!
Thanks

NT Wright challenges your pre-suppositions

Raised a Methodist and ‘born again’ in a charismatic non-denominational church, I have found that listening to NT Wright has helped me to challenge my theological presuppositions and reform my thinking more towards what a 1st century Jewish believer in Jesus would consider as a ‘biblical mindset’. Thank you for an engaging podcast. Tom’s helped me to see how much of an ignorant Platonist I was, and I am on the journey towards re-instating a proper biblical worldview of what Jesus actually came to do. Blessings
